This Los Alamos Vineyard Chardonnay harkens back to the classic Chardonnays from this vineyard. The nose and the palate show generous amounts of citrus, with lemon custard being the most apparent. The palate is very rich and intense with the characteristic briny quality that you can typically expect from Los Alamos. The richness of this wine is balanced by its mouthwatering acidity and a touch of new oak. Overall this is one of Chanin's most classic Los Alamos Chardonnays.
"Clean Asian pear, wet gravel and lime peel aromas show on the tightly wound nose of this bottling. The palate is quite delicate at first, offering lightly seared white peach, chalk and lime zest notes, but grows increasingly savory and delicious as it opens, indicating great cellar potential. Drink 2018–2030." – Wine Enthusiast, 93pts.
"Gavin Chanin`s 2015 Chardonnay Los Alamos Vineyard captures a striking middle ground that expresses both the richness of the year and the focus that is possible on this site. As always, the flavors are bright and focused, but there is quite a bit of textural depth and richness. This is very nicely done." – Antonio Galloni of Vinous, 93pts.
