Clean mineral tones. Limes and sweet tarts on the nose Creamy mid palate and a touch of bitterness on the back end. Pretty consistent with other bottles. Quite nice drinking, but I don't get what all the raves I hear about this.
I drank a glass over a couple hours. Honeydew melon, lime, some rather distinctive fruit and a nice purity of fruit. Aside from that, not that enjoyable at this stage, and completely outclassed tonight by the other chardonnay. I would hold these for a while. Score reserved, I would score it 89 tonight.
Worldwide World Class Chards (Edina, MN): Light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 3 hours. There is a very nice minerality to this, oyster shells, ocean breezes, etc, very subtle brioche, lemon emerges later. The palate has lemon, good purity, fine minerality, lime, elegant, and it develops depth and length as it evolves in glass over an hour plus. Seems young, and probably shut down at this point. As is, about 92pts , with expectation for much more down the road.
On the nose, faint lime and pineapple citrus. On the palate, pear and white peach, with notes of lime, pineapple, and iodine leading into a medium to long finish, with good acidity. Excellent; I only wish it were $40 instead of $65.
