ARGYLE 2010 BLANC DE BLANCS KNUDESEN VINEYARD JULIA LEE'S BLOCK

WINERY NOTES-"Talk about long hang time...the high elevation Knudsen Vineyard, Dijon Clone Chardonnay in the 2010 Blanc de Blancs wasn't harvested until October 18th, a full month behind our usual picking window! As a result, we see the strict interplay between vivid aromatics and steely, razor's edge minerality. Comice pear, faint pomelo, and fresh brioche seep calmly against the stern, edgy backbone. In order to tame that wild, late season acid and develop creamy texture, this Chardonnay was fermented entirely in our oldest neutral oak barrels and allowed to age on the lees. The tense, enlivening acidity and elegant mousse leave the salvaries coated with umami-like richness. I'm thinking Chelsea Gem oysters and a sandy beach." Julia Lee's Block, palanted in 1990, is a carefully selected higher elevation site of the Knudsen Vineyard. This block is planted with 100% Dijon clone Chardonnay.
