Winemaker Notes :

An intense and expressive nose of brioche, mineral, peach blossom, candied orange, mangosteen, lemon oil, yellow peach and dried apricot. Notes of vanilla, toasted hazelnut, meringue and subtle white truffle interact to complete a multi-layered and very intense bouquet. In the mouth, the texture is ample and creamy, displaying ample “gras” and balanced with a lingering mineral finish. The 2014 Cuvee Indigene will age and express its potential for two decades, much like its Burgundian cousins from Corton-Charlemagne.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Cuvée Indigène shows more orange marmalade and caramelized citrus along with plenty of butter, honeysuckle and leesy, almost hazelnut notes. Both are magnificent Chardonnays to drink over the next decade or more.

VinousOne of the most reticent wines in this lineup, the 2014 Chardonnay Cuvée Indigène is powerful and tightly wound to the core. It will need at least a few years to truly come together. Even at this early stage, the Cuvée Indigène offers a compelling interplay. Offers a striking combination of power, minerality and overall intensity. The Indigène has a lot to say, but readers will have to be patient here. The Cuvée is a selection of the oldest Wente clones on the property.

Wine SpectatorSpicy, smoky, toasty oak gives this a roasted edge that adds dimension to the rich pear, fig and melon flavors, reverberating on the finish where this gains depth and dimension. Drink now.
