Another stunner is the 2017 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard. This Russian River Valley release is reminiscent of a top Montrachet with its beautiful, toasty, powerful bouquet of crushed citrus, lemon oil, toasted nuts, and salty minerality. These all show on the palate as well, and it has a crystalline, precise style that still carries incredible richness and depth. It’s actually going to benefit from a year in bottle and I suspect evolve for over a decade.
