PAUL LATO CHARDONNAY "BELLE DE JOUR", DUVARITA VINEYARD, SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2015
NVWE Notes: A wonderfully feminine contrast to the luxurious 2014 Belle, this aristocratic beauty shows crystalline definition in its ultra-elegant perfume of sweet Meyer lemon, grapefruit sorbet, white peach, pear skin, cox orange pippin apple, lychee, white rose, vanilla wafer, meringue and “river-stone” mineral scents. It proves as sleek and classy as hoped on the palate, where flavors of grapefruit sorbet, apple skin, peach pit, dried peach, white rose, orange blossom, hazelnut nougat and flint fan-out in chiseled focus. The finish is long and captivating and as the wine airs it grows more and more like fine white Burgundy. As near-perfect as it seems now, expect another three years of positive evolution.
The 2015 Chardonnay Belle de Jour Duvarita Vineyard is a rich, honeyed wine endowed with lovely depth and oiliness. Tangerine peel, butter, honey and chamomile all flesh out in the glass. This is a decidedly opulent wine in its flavor profile, although medium-bodied in terms of structure. Drink 2017 - 2022 Antonio Galloni Sep 2017
