The signature of this vineyard remains its terroir-driven minerality. The nose is dominated by aromas of brioche, toasted almond, dry honey, vine blossom, hazelnut and William pear. Accents of orange blossom, acacia, honey and vanilla complete the elegant bouquet. Citrus oil, white peach and lemon highlight the minerality. Magnificent concentration and elegance on the palate sculpt the structure of this wine, offering intensity and richness. While approachable now, the 2016 La Carrière will handsomely reward two years of cellaring and will continue to develop for a decade or more.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample (mainly from the Hyde clone), the 2017 Chardonnay la Carriere has a drop-dead gorgeous nose of dried apricots, warm pineapple, guava and pear tart with hints of candied ginger, honeycomb and orange blossoms. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich and creamy with great freshness and some mineral accents coming through on the long finish.
