Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Leading 2014 Chardonnay Belle de Jour Duvarita Vineyard comes from a cool site west of the Sta. Rita Hills and is from the Calera and Mt Eden clones. It's the first wine from Paul from this site and there's a scant six barrels to go around. Spending 14 months in 50% new French oak, it has a terrific bouquet of smoke, charcoal, stone and apple fruits, brioche and integrated oak. This gives way to a rich, layered Chardonnay that has bright acidity, a layered, seamless texture and a great finish. In short, it's another sensational Chardonnay from a great winemaker."

Product Description:

"Fresh aromas of yellow apple and lime rind arise on the clean and crisp nose, while fully-rounded tones of butterscotch and meyer lemon envelop the palate in juicy bliss. The finish is long and mouth-watering with toasted hazelnut and honeysuckle notes lingering." -Winery
