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 AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay la Carriere has a delicate nose of white peaches, grapefruit and honeysuckle with a yeasty undercurrent and a waft of allspice. Medium-bodied, the palate has great elegance and sophistication, with a quiet intensity of citrus and stone fruit layers and a lively backbone, finishing with mineral nuances. To be bottled in February 2018; 1,940 cases are expected.

Wine SpectatorRaw-textured, with a pithy edge to the core citrus and green tree fruit flavors, this white gains a measure of harmony and should be smoother in time. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,815 cases made.
