    The 2014 "Cuveé Alyce" Chardonnay from Walter Hansel is the highest tier bottling in the brand, and does not disappoint. A rich golden hue, the Russian River Valley Chardonnay entices with aromas that are equally toasty, earthy and mineral laden. One sip, and you'll be transfixed by the refined power of this wine, which manages to be both concentrated in flavor and mineral prominent.

    This is typical Russian River Chardonnay with its glycerin textured middle of ripe stone fruit and pebbly finish of mineral and glazed citrus. A tropical note shows up along with baked peach lending a sensation of fatness to the long, rich body. The quality to price ratio is amazing.

    Walter Hansel makes some of the best value richer-styled Russian River wines we carry, and the “Cuvée Alyce” represents the top selected barrels of their Chardonnay. It is Burgundian in style with flint, toasted oak, smoke and a subtle nuttiness. It has great phenolic weight on the palate and that beautiful fog-induced acid to balance and give definition to the rich flavor profile.
