“The 2018 Flanagan Baciagalupi Chardonnay offers breathtaking notes of Jonagold apple, Bartlett pear, nectarine, lime and meringue with hints of vanilla bean. Luxuriously rich and silky smooth on the palate with a refreshing finish that will leave begging for another sip. This wine is a delight to drink and will continue age gracefully for another 5-7 years.” - California Wine Advisors

Winery Notes: “Our 2018 Bacigalupi Chardonnay has a nose of citrus and peach blossoms. The palate opens with fresh White peach and Meyer lemon with brioche toast on the finish. We aged the wine in Boutes cooperage for 11 months with 40% new barrels. Bacigalupi probably has the most classic Russian River profile of all our Chardonnays. We believe in letting each site express itself. That means that each of our wines has a barrel program and wine chemistry unique to that vineyard site in a given vintage. This is terrific wine from one of Sonoma County’s top Chardonnay sites and will age gracefully for many years.”
