Review

Always one of my favorites because of its wet gravel/alluvial character, the 2011 Chardonnay Martinelli Road is a stunning, profound, grand cru Burgundy-styled Chardonnay with abundant notes of white peach, honeysuckle and apricot marmalade as well as good acidity, purity and texture. This full-bodied, nearly bigger-than-life Chardonnay should be drunk during its first 4-5 years of life.
