"Over the past 25 years Kistler has been synonymous with Top Chardonnay, kinda the White Burgundy Grand Cru version of California. Kistler wines sell for $100+. The past 5+ years Jason Kesner has been at the helm of this much sought after winery. But did you say $100+? I have good news Jason has been making his own wine for many years as well and it is “the” wine by the glass at Top Restaurants like Benu, French Laundry, etc. He just released the 2013 Bacigalupi bottling from this equally famed Russian River Valley vineyard, at ½ the price of a Kistler bottling." - Winery Notes
That said, The 2013 exhibits all of the markers of a perfectly balanced California Chardonnay. Soft floral tones and crème soaked pears with a hint of honeysuckle and a light chalky sense of minerality lift from the glass. Green and golden orchard fruits threaded with corn silk resonate through the body of the wine, which is luxuriously mouth filling yet poised, and held tight by the well integrated naturally occurring acids.
