TREFETHEN Chardonnay 2016

(Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley, CA) $38

Trefethen made its first Napa Valley chardonnay in 1973, and 3 years later, its 1976 chardonnay was ranked Number One in the Gault Millau Wine Olympics in Paris. The best news of all: they’re still making beautiful, sophisticated chardonnay to this day. (Experience does count). Unlike the California butter bombs of the 90s and 2000s, this chardonnay harkens back to a time when top chardonnay meant one that was refined, lovely, fresh, lively, and wonderfully long. This is that wine. (13.4% abv)
