Beautiful pale-gold color with enticing aromas of lemon creme, baking spices and mineral long finished. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of white peach flavors and spiced baked pear. A stony /mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part new and part Old World. Pairs well with most fish, crab, chicken, and even many pork preparations. Particularly recommended with dishes using sauteed wild mushrooms or butter sauces. This wine will age for years in a cellar.

The 2020 G Lot Chardonnay comes from a warmer year when they picked 20 days earlier than usual. It fermented in French barrels where it matured for eight months. It has a very balsamic profile, it's still very young and the ripeness is contained, similar to the 2019 I tasted next to it. It's creamy and floral, with good freshness and a compact mouthfeel. 30,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2020.

The 2020 Chardonnay Luca "G-Lot" hails from Gualtallary, Uco Valley, and was four-fifths aged in one-quarter new barrels. Yellow with a golden sheen. The nose offers notes of pineapple, cedar and yeast with hints of apple and ginger. Creamy and slick in the mouth, it makes an indulgent entrance before the voluminous flow and terse feel lead on to a fruity finish underlined by the oak.

Fruit forward, with baked apple and ripe pear flavors that offer a ripe, creamy texture. The spicy finish lingers with notes of beeswax. Drink now. 1,800 cases made, 800 cases imported.

An oaky nose offers up mild notes of brine, apple and minerals, while this feels chunky and resiny. Oak is primary on the flavor profile, which includes clove, cinnamon and grainy spice but not much overt fruit. Woodiness remains at the fore of a pulpy finish.
