The 2012 Chardonnay Le Souvenir Sierra Madre Vineyard is another stunner from Lato. Spending 16 months in 65% new French oak, it offers serious minerality in its apple blossom, golden fruits, crushed rock and spice-driven profile. Focused, slightly restrained, beautifully pure and all-around pure class, it opens up beautifully with air, have integrated acidity and a crisp finish. (JD)
Green-tinged yellow. Highly pungent bouquet evokes pear skin and citrus pith, along with suggestions of iodine and smoky minerals. Rich and fleshy but dry, offering incisive lime, anise, honeysuckle and pear skin flavors underscored by chalky minerals and a gingery nuance. Closes silky and extremely long, with resonating floral and spice notes and excellent clarity. Lato opened a bottle of the 2007 version of this wine, which reminded me of a traditionally made white Burgundy, with powerful iodine and floral character and an array of orchard and citrus fruit elements. It's fully mature but in no danger of fading just yet. (AG)
