Hyde de Villaine Chardonnay 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh floral and citrus notes are abundant in the complex aromatics of this wine. Citrus, pear, and apricot accompanied by a wonderfully balanced acidity and freshness that suggests long agibility. Mineral depth and a rich mouthfeel speak toward the old world style of this mouthwatering Chardonnay. Elegant and restrained, like a Queen on her throne, it is poised, firm and elegant on the palate, with a long-lasting finish, sure to entice the senses and keep one returning for more! "Lemon peel, white flowers, white orchard fruit and mint give this wine its lifted personality, but there is plenty of palate weight and depth. This is a classy, super-polished Chardonnay from Hyde de Villaine." - Antonio Galloni (95 Pt)

HdV is a family venture between Hyde Vineyards of Napa Valley and Aubert & Pamela de Villaine of Burgundy, France. Aubert de Villaine, married to the Hyde's cousin Pamela F. de Villaine, is one of Burgundies most recognized individuals. Born and raised in the rich traditions of France's greatest winemaking techniques, Aubert brings to the partnership the foundation upon which the venture bases its theories and practices. Larry Hyde came to the Napa Valley over thirty years ago with a great love of wine and the soil. In 1979, Larry left his job as an apprentice at some of Napa's finest wineries to purchase and transform the Carneros soils into what is now known as Hyde Vineyards. Twenty-five years later, Hyde Vineyards has become renown for the unique expression of its Carneros terroir. Joining our venture in 2002, our winemaker, Stéphane Vivier, brings with him skills in vineyard management and winemaking from around the world. Born and raised in France, Stéphane's skills were cultivated in the vineyards and cellars of Pommard, Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet and then expanded through his work in New Zealand and the Sonoma Coast Appellation. HdV is bottled under the coat of arms of the historic de la Guerra family from which Pamela de Villaine and the Hydes descend. The De la Guerra Family is one of the oldest winemaking families in California and traces its winemaking history back to a gold medal received at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Fair. Read less
