I last reviewed the 2014 vintage of this wine and was impressed. I was curious to see if they could consistently continue at this quality level. Pale to slightly golden in color with a lovely mild nose of apple and pear. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with lovely apple and pear coming through. This is another chard that is sensitive to temperature, don’t serve it too cold or you will miss it’s complexity. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely butterscotch nose, and some acidity. This is a lightly oaked chard. We paired it with pan seared scallops and cod and it went perfectly. They have done a good job on this one again. I would give it an 88 or so. Very nice.
