Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Chardonnay 2015


SKU 51554


Our 2015 Director's Cut Chardonnay presents lively aromas of citrus and tropical fruits along with pretty floral notes and an edge of minerals that evolves on the palate. You'll find luscious flavors of Meyer lemon, quince, and passion fruit up front, but as the wine opens up you get the impression of pear crisp, which delivers fragrant spice notes of cardamom, nutmeg and vanilla bean. Richly textured with good palate density, there is a fresh quality to this year's fruit and a sophisticated toastiness from the wood.

Wine EnthusiastThis offers concentration and weight despite a light take on ripeness, combining both sides of the coin in a package of moderate acidity and lush tropical fruit. Meyer lemon, pineapple shine brightest, as the texture of the wine is slightly gravelly.
