When I hear of three grand cru bottles in a row being undrinkable (Bienvenues Batard Monrachet) I think it is more than just parsimony on cork quality. While there are exemplary producers, I can only assume that there are a number who are working on the basis of minimizing cost and maximizing revenue no matter what the impact on the product or consumer

However, I usually prefer the Allen and Hawk Hill bottlings over the Heintz (not trying to denigrate the Heintz). This Heintz 2009 was just perfect. It's possible the 95 rating was a little low. The four years age and the perfect drinking temperature - chilled, not cold - really let this wine shine. I truly feel the WS Chardonnays, outshine their Pinot Noirs.

I've never had one from Shea that I mistook, however briefly, for a Rhone varietal. That said, I really liked it once I got my head around it. Cheers!

In the past I got it from Lynmar, although you get what you pay for there (ie a lot of $ but you know it is good). I actually bought the WS because I liked the Lynmar Pinot noir from Hawk Hill. Does someone new have the contract to do the grapes?

Not sure if there are any wine-specific storage units in Nashville, but it is worth calling around to storage companies and asking about temperature and humidity control. They might have something suitable for long term storage.
