DELILLE CELLARS White Wine 'Chaleur Estate' 2015

The 2015 ‘Chaleur Estate’ Blanc follows up the past two exceedingly impressive releases of this wine — both of which were featured on my Top 100 wines of North America. This wine continues to make its case for one of the top Bordeaux Blanc style white wines out there. This impressive white wine begins with aromatics of hazelnuts, New York apple, cantaloupe and suggestions of wild mushroom. There are flavors reminiscent of marzipan, cashew nut, ripe pear, Meyer lemon zest, brioche and heavy whipping cream. This has wonderful freshness considering the heat of the vintage. The viscosity and texture is gorgeous.(Best 2018-2033) - March, 2017 (OB)
