QUPE CHARDONNAY "RESERVE - BLOCK ELEVEN" BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD SANTA MARIA VALLEY 2012 375ml HALF-BOTTLE

Vinous

93 Points

The 2012 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Reserve Block Eleven is rich and voluptuous in the glass, with copious apricot pit, honey, chamomile, butter, spice and orange blossom. This is a decidedly flashy, buttery Chardonnay, but all the elements are in the right place, even if this style can't exactly be called subtle. Drink 2015 - 2022. Antonio Galloni Aug 2015

I loved Bob's 2012 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Reserve Block 11. This 100% Chardonnay saw 100% malolactic fermentation and 18 months in mostly new Francois Freres barrels. The best vintage of the cuvee to date, it offers terrific notes of ripe apple and orchard fruits, honey blossom, white flowers and that salty, ocean air-like minerality that's so common in wines from this region. Medium+-bodied, fresh, taut and energetic, yet still with solid fruit and texture, it can be drunk now or cellared for a decade. Drink Date 2014 - 2024. Jeb Dunnuck 30th Jun 2015
