The 2015 Staglin Chardonnay opens with wonderfully high-toned notes of perfectly ripe citrus, delicate spring flowers, finely powdered minerals with emergent hints of lemongrass, nutmeg and lightly toasted hazelnuts. Like Grace Kelly in Monaco or Jackie Kennedy in the White House, this wine is pure class and grace. It is exceptionally balanced with a tight yet deft texture and given verve by a resonant crystalline energy reminiscent of liquefied quartz. The elegant structure has beautifully sculpted and filigreed edges that give it length and presence with an abundance of poise. This wine is just a pleasure to drink!
