Sourced from one of the most famous vineyards in the Russian River Valley, Bacigalupi is likely one of the best California Chardonnay's you'll try under 100 dollars. There's history behind that statement: In 1976, Bacigalupi Chardonnay grapes were part of the Chateau Montelena blend that won the famous “Paris Tasting” that trounced the French.
Freshness and drinkability merge with vineyard longevity and deliver expressive aromas of white flowers and Meyer lemon with notes of toasted almonds and vanilla. Full-bodied flavors of mango, lemon curd and spiced pear with bright acidity sustain a long finish. This is a wine that has weight and elegance with enough power to proclaim its origin.
