2008 La Follette Chardonnay

2008 La Follette Chardonnay, Mendocino Ridge

This crisp, structured white might be harder to find than your typical Chard (only 272 cases), but it’s a Clone 76/Dijon 809 work of art.

More floral, less buttery (win, win).

Peach, lemon.

Just enough creaminess, and the tannins give it that underlying strength. It’s anything but flabby. Bottled unfiltered.

$48, 94 pts. 272 cases
