A terrific opportunity to taste 2 stellar Sonoma Chardonnays for a song. 3 bottles of each,
2017 Rutz Maison Grand Cru Russian River Valley Chardonnay - Selling out of the winery tasting room for $45/bottle, this wine is sourced from the legendary Baciagalupi Ranch (same source for the Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that took the famous Judgement of Paris) Wente Clone Chardonnay. The wine was 100% barrel-fermented and aged in 50% new French oak. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered so it has a cloudy visage but superlative aromatics.
2018 Maison Rutz 2018 Sonoma Cuvee Chardonnay - A bottle of this Chard will set you back $20 in the tasting room. A blend of 70% Russian River Valley and 30% Sonoma Carneros and Sonoma Coast fruit, this beautiful Chardonnay is barrel-fermented (with 100% malolactic fermentation) and aged in 33% new French oak for just the right balance of fruit, richness, butter and structure.
