Kistler 2019 Les Noisetiers Chardonnay
Kistler's Les Noisetiers is a three vineyard blend Chardonnay from the sites used for Kistler's single vineyard bottlings (Vine Hill, Dutton Ranch, and Trenton Hill). Les Noisetiers translates to "the hazelnuts" and is in reference to the hallmark toasted hazelnut notes that Chardonnay from these three sites has every year. This bottling was aged 11 months in 25% new French oak before an additional 3 months of aging in stainless steel. Expect notes of yellow pear, green apple, lemon, and of course, hazelnut.
