Appearance: The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking. Aroma: Captivates with aromas of lemon oil, white peach preserve, and nectarine powder interlaced with notes of crushed white gravel and savory spice. Flavor: The palate is expressive and concentrated with nuanced layers of citrus, pear tart, brioche, and minerals. The CIX finishes long and pure and will age gracefully for 15+ years.

CIX stands for "109" as this block, planted in 2008 to Montrachet clones, was originally called "parcel 109" when they purchased it. The 2017 Chardonnay CIX Estate has an incredibly intense nose of lemon peel, green mango, fresh pears and powdered ginger with suggestions of baking bread, chopped cashews, lightly buttered popcorn and crème brûlée. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and bold with a racy line carrying the citrus and savory layers to an incredibly long finish.
