Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay offers captivating aromas of quince, apricot, and Meyer lemon, underscored by sumptuous notes of crème fraiche and brioche, and French oak-inspired hints of clove, cardamom, and vanilla. Though round and silky on the palate, an undercurrent of bright acidity adds poise and precision to lush fruit flavors, with notes of orange zest, hazelnut, and spice adding nuance to a lingering finish.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine Enthusiast - "Mineral driven, this impressive wine is lively and layered in apple, pear and brioche, its oak integrated and lightly toasted. A touch of richness gives it additional weight and breadth across the memorable texture and lasting baking spice."


Wine Spectator - "The 2017 Chardonnay Grower Collection El Novillero has a lovely nose of white apricot and peach with apple pie, honey toast, toasted hazelnut, wet stone, and creamy lemon. Medium-bodied, it packs a punch of flavor in the mouth with great layers of ripe fruits, savory/toasty notes and creamy citrus plus suggestions of white blossoms, with refreshing acidity to lift the long, long flavorful finish. Rating: 94+"


Jeb Dunnuck - "Also from Carneros, the 2017 Chardonnay Chappellet Grower Collection El Novillero saw a slightly longer elevage of 10 months in barrel followed by four months in tank. Rocking notes of white currants, crushed citrus, brioche, and honeyed lemons all flow to a medium to full-bodied chardonnay that has a fresh, focused, crystalline texture that carries beautiful depth of fruit. It's another high-quality wine from this team that has loads to love."
