“The 2016 Chardonnay Bien Bien comes from one of the top sites in the Santa Maria Valley and spent 15 months in 25% new French oak. It has a classic, pure style as well as notes of apple blossoms, crushed rocks, licorice, and white flowers. It’s another seamless, elegant, ethereally textured beauty that’s impeccably balanced, has no hard edges, and beautiful length. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years.” - Jeb Dunnuck
