2017 DuMOL “WESTER REACH” CHARDONNAY
If I had to choose just one California Chardonnay to enjoy for my lifetime, DuMOL would rank high on my list. Their Chardonnays are all about balance, focus, and they’re naturally rich, without being heavy or cloying. The texture is heavenly, and the nuances are sophisticated. There’s a reason why they’ve steadily grown from a few hundred cases to thousands, and it’s because they never sacrifice quality. With a 95 Point score from Robert Parker, now might be the last chance to stock up.
The 2017 Wester Reach Chardonnay perfectly intertwines fruit from three iconic Russian River Valley Vineyards, including Dutton Ranch, Charles Heintz, and Lorenzo. With the average age of the vines topping 40 years, the deep root systems allow abundant complexity to flow from the earth.
The 2017 vintage is from one of the lowest-yielding harvests in twenty years, making it concentrated and focused. The wine was barrel fermented and spent just 12 months in 30% new French oak to preserve the freshness of the fruit. At under $60, this is one of the best values in top-tier California Chardonnay.
