Edge Hill'Bacigalupi Vineyard' Chardonnay 2016

Edge Hill 'Bacigalupi Vineyard' Chardonnay 2016 - K. Laz Wine Collection
Edge Hill was considered one of the finest wine estates in Napa Valley until it ceased production in 1907. Inspired by this legacy, Leslie Rudd restored this historic property and is now handcrafting a limited production of select wines, using exceptional grapes from heritage vineyard sites. Bacigalupi Vineyard first garnered the attention of the world when in the 1978 Paris Tasting, the winning Chateau Montelena Chardonnay came from this old vine Chardonnay site. Today, those same vines are what makes this Edge Hill Chardonnay so special. "Light straw and clear in color, the nose of the 2016 Edge Hill exhibits white peach flesh and a note of honey. Richness and acidity on the palate are highlighted with aromatics of almond nougat. The finish is brilliant, with crisp minerality. Fermented in new and neutral French oak, the 2016 has the depth and complexity that can only come from old vine Chardonnay. And in this case, the Judgment of Paris block carries with it a unique history.”
