Kistler 2019 Les Noisetiers ChardonnayIn Fine Spirits
This ‘Les Noisetiers’ Chardonnay is Kistler’s multi-vineyard Chardonnay bottling based on the three Sonoma Coast vineyards from which they bottle single vineyard examples. Noisetiers means ‘hazelnut’ in French and “refers to the lightly toasted hazelnut characters manifested year in and year out from these sites.” Layered balance of juicy fruit with a mineral backbone. Aromas of white flowers and stone fruit lead you right into a full-bodied core loaded with flavors of peach, apricots, pineapple and pear. The extremely long finish confirms that you are enjoying an absolute icon in American winemaking.
