Foxen's 2017 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU is creamy, supple and expressive, with striking depth and nuance. In 2017, the Block UU has an extra kick of texture that is hugely appealing. Lemon confit, orchard fruit and chamomile all grace this compelling and wonderfully inviting Chardonnay from Foxen. What a pretty wine this is.
Moving to the two Chardonnays I was able to taste, the 2017 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU spent 8 months on lees in 20% new French oak 500-liter barrels. Caramelized apples, toasted spice, white flowers, and lots of minerality and iodine notes all emerge from this more structured, foursquare, concentrated effort that's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age. It's a classic expression of this site and should keep for over a decade. 92+
A warm butter aroma meets with lemon spray, citrus pith, wet gravel and crushed limestone on the nose of this bottling from a coveted single block in a historic vineyard. There is lots of tension on the palate, where restrained flavors of lime peel and Asian pear make for a tasty experience.
