Tasting Notes:

95 points "Always one of my favorites because of its wet gravel/alluvial character, the 2011 Chardonnay Martinelli Road is a stunning, profound, grand cru Burgundy-styled Chardonnay with abundant notes of white peach, honeysuckle and apricot marmalade as well as good acidity, purity and texture. This full-bodied, nearly bigger-than-life Chardonnay should be drunk during its first 4-5 years of life." Best -2018

87 points "Presents a green apple and lemon-citrus edge. Intense and straightforward, but lacks finesse and polish. Drink now. 122 cases made. –JL" Best 2014-

91 points "Greenish gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruit aromas are enlivened by lemon zest and ginger. Smooth and fleshy in texture, offering broad pear and honey flavors and a subtle mineral touch. Suggestions of vanilla and clove show the 60% new oak component and carry through a smoky, clinging finish, with the lemon note echoing This was the last chardonnay vineyard that the Martinellis picked this vintage."
