Wine Item Detail
EIEIO & Company 2007 Chardonnay - Cuvée I
Cuvée I is a continual work in progress in the pursuit of Chardonnay perfection. Pale straw in color, the bouquet is an intermingling of white flower, melon, peach, Key Lime, Meyer Lemon and notes of hulled Filberts, toasted almonds, caramel crème brulee drizzled with raw honey. A slight diesel note evolves into aromatics of freshly poured concrete, indicative of a clean fermentation. In the mouth, delicious stone fruits, peeled green apple and lemon meringue streaked with hazelnuts and honey lead to a creamy shortcake texture that gives this wine weight while the refreshing acidity keeps its lean profile in check. A magnificently crafted and refined wine that will delight the more critical Chardonnay follower. Drink or cellar this baby.
