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