2022 La Source Chardonnay
Year after year, this wine shows equal parts verve and breadth, and 2022 is no different. Classic notes of struck match, lemon zest and Fuji apple coalesce with hints of baking spice and lees that widen in the mouth. A long growing season and fermentation lend a freshness and high-toned character to the wine, showing as tart, salty yellow fruits that sail through the palate. Mouthwatering, zippy and poised to reveal more with years in bottle, La Source speaks to the electric side of the world’s top white grape.

2022 Summum Chardonnay
This is why Chardonnay is meant for the volcanic, east-facing hillside of Seven Springs Vineyard. To be more exact, Summum illustrates the laser-like precision from the rockier top half of 14 rows of Chardonnay planted almost three decades ago. The wine is elegance. Ripe tree fruit, white flowers, roasted hazelnut and flint are just the entry to a cuvée of volume and delicacy, concentration and well-integrated oak in a svelte frame. It recalls the weightlessness and purity of a chiseled premier cru Meursault-Blagny. The finish hangs on, textured and long-lasting. As is the life of this wine.

2017 La Source Chardonnay
Our generously-textured, showstopping Chardonnay grown just below the Summum Chardonnay vines. The La Source will age beautifully but offers up more richness and depth upon release than any other Chardonnay bottling. This wine’s still-pale color offers a welcome glimpse of itsdelicate handling in the cellar and youthfulness in the bottle. Naturally, aftersix plus years it has unlocked more depth as well. Fresh lemon meringue,flint and white flowers are complemented by richer aromas of brown butter
and toasted sesame seed that, in a gustatory copycat, also carry both finesse and width on the palate. There’s still a real nerviness, a saltiness, a vivid quality that’s accented by just-detectable oak and nuttiness on the finish. (3/2024)

2017 Summum Chardonnay
Our generously-textured, showstopping Chardonnay grown just below the Summum Chardonnay vines. The La Source will age beautifully but offers up more richness and depth upon release than any other Chardonnay bottling. The select rows of Chardonnay that make up Summum exude basal warmth and high-pitched electricity at the same moment. This 2017 is no different, rife with notes of salted puff pastry, apple mousse, matchstick and beeswax that expand with time in the glass. Dense, full-bodied, though
prodding in acidity and spice that balance the scales, the wine’s elegance, much like its aromas and flavors, slowly reveals itself through all this energy. Summum offers plenty to enjoy now and will continue to do so for some time. (3/2024)
