- 93+ Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "The 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard bursts forth from the glass with vibrant white peach, pink grapefruit and yuzu aromas with underlying marzipan, orange blossom and honeyed toast hints. Light-bodied, with intense stone fruit and citrus flavors that punch above its weight, it has an electric backbone of freshness and long, minerally finish."
- VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: "The 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido is laced with essence of apricot pit, peach, chamomile, honey and mint. Creamy, layered and voluptuous, yet also medium in body, the 2015 is absolutely delicious. I would prefer to drink it on the earlier side."
- 93 Punkte INTERNATIONAL WINEREPORT: "The 2015 Bien Nacido Chardonnay is a delicious and simply gorgeous wine from Gavin Chanin. This opens to pretty aromas of lemon curd, orchard fruits, white flowers, lychee, hazelnut, and fresh minerals which all elegantly take shape. This possesses a medium body, which is well balanced and focused around bright flavors of citrus, tropical fruit and apple. Overall, this is a wine that can benefit from some additional bottle age with the potential to flourish over the course of the next decade. (Best 2018-2026)"
- JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard is racy and ultra-fresh, with notes of citrus, salt block, white peach and hints of spice in its medium-bodied, surprisingly concentrated and textured personality. It's a beautiful Chardonnay that's going to hit prime time in another year (or so) and keep for a decade or more. This cuvée was barrel fermented and spent 15 months in 20% new French oak."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||The grapes were harvested on four separate days to achieve ideal ripeness?September 1, 2, 4 and 17. Each lot was pressed and directly put into French oak barrels (10% new) to ferment. The wine stayed there for 12 months on its lies and was then racked and lightly fined before being bottled unfiltered in December 2015. Tasting Note: This wine is pale straw in color with aromas of toasted hazelnuts and sea breeze. On the palate, there?s a striking acidity and crispness, laced with textural richness and a power that leads to a juicy finish.
