2016 Chardonnay - Cuvee Alyce
12 bottle maximum
From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 10/28/16, issue 227: "Produced from a field blend of Hyde and Hudson Wente selections. This is a big Chardonnay made from tiny berries. Orange marmalade, tangerine oil, honeysuckle and citrus are all present in this beautifully textured, full-bodied Chardonnay that shows little evidence of oak. Should drink well for at least a decade." 93-95 pts, 1085 cases produced.
From Vinous.com: "The 2016 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce is gorgeous, but is also going to need a few years to come into its own. All of the signatures of this wine - specifically the rich, tropical fruit - are there, but there is also a good bit of freshness to play off the more over elements." 93 pts
