This is the Fifth Release of the “East of Eden” Chardonnay from the famed Pisoni Vineyard. Only a few barrels were produced, and I was lucky to get a few cases from Paul as they were all earmarked for his mailing list and for restaurants like French Laundry, Per Se, Gary Danko, etc. This is probably the best rendition of a 1er Cru Montrachet produced in California. As you are well aware of Paul’s meticulous wine-making skills and strategy, nothing escapes this guru of precision! I’d say that this wine is very similar to the great 2013 vintage, which received 97 Points from Parker!
Paul Lato notes: “Full bodied wine with bright acid and an almost salty minerality. My Master Sommelier friend called it "Corton, Charlemangne-like." The low-yields of Pisoni Vineyard contribute to this muscular and delineated wine. The palate has textured, tannin-like structure with an elegant finish. Not to be missed, limited quantities..”
Robert Parker 2014 – 96 Points: “From one of the top sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2014 Chardonnay East Of Eden Pisoni Vineyard is a tour de force in Chardonnay that will stand up with the best California offers. More masculine, rich and textured, with tons of caramelized orchard fruits, orange blossom, minerality and brioche, it has a great mid-palate, excellent acidity and shows serious length on the finish. Aged 14 months in 50% new French oak, it should have a decade or more of longevity, although there's no need to delay gratification too long.”
