Bachelder Bai Xu Chardonnay Vielles Vignes 1981 Planting 2021

Four Mile Creek, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThis is sourced from Bai Xu Vineyard in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation of Niagara-on-the-Lake, planted in 1981 to clone 95. It shows rich, honeyed red apple and lemon curd, with a mealy accent and delicate touch of oak. It's rich, creamy, and textured, yet with good freshness. Savoury and already slightly evolved, this feels like it'll be at its best over the short term, but it makes for quite a satisfying, complex pour now.Tasted: 16 December 2023Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
