2021 "Goldberg Variations" No. 4 Chardonnay
Hyde Vineyard, JD 99 points
"From one of the iconic sites in Carneros, the 2021 Chardonnay Goldberg Variations No. 4 Hyde Vineyard will give a great vintage from Aubert a run for its money. Ripe pineapple, honeyed lemon, candle wax, green almond, and toasted bread all define the aromatics, and it's full-bodied, with a pure, seamless mouthfeel, tons of richness, and a great finish. It's one of the finest Chardonnays in this report. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years."
