Agnes Chardonnay – Vinous – 92+ Points
Pale, bright straw-yellow. A bit lighter and more citrussy on the nose than the Clay Shales, offering aromas of white peach, lemon drop, lime, apple, nutmeg, minerals and crushed stone. A bit less silky than the Clay Shales but firmer and more sharply delineated, showing less sweetening influence of oak but lovely dusty brown spice influence. A slightly cooler style with a tighter, more minerally, more savory back end. This will need some patience to put on weight and expand.
