The 2011 Chardonnay Ma Douce is an unfiltered white made from a vineyard on the second ridge line on the Sonoma Coast planted with an Old Wente clone in Goldridge soils. Its stunning perfume of buttered citrus, popcorn, white currants and honeysuckle fill the olfactory senses. It is followed by a full-bodied wine with terrific acidity, power and richness. This vineyard is planted at a 1,300 foot elevation, way above the fog line in that area. Like most 2011s, it will probably last over five years, but I recommend drinking it on the early side as I am not sure this is a vintage to cellar.

Orange peel, mint, apricot jam, jasmine and honey are some of the notes that emerge from the 2011 Chardonnay Ma Douce. A rich, sweet Chardonnay, the 2011 stands out for its viscosity and intensity. Although there was no botrytis here, the 2011 has an unctuous, oily texture that works beautifully. The layered finish is inviting and very nicely done. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2021.
