2011 Chardonnay, Platt Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
I was also impressed by the 2011 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard. Cropped at one ton of fruit per acre (Ramey told me the grapes looked like petits pois from France), and from one of the coldest sites in his portfolio, it exhibits lively notes of lemon oil, lime skins, white peaches and a touch of honey. This fresh, medium-bodied, concentrated 2011 should drink well for 4-5 years.
