Ponzi Vineyards Chardonnay Reserve 2017 (92 WE)

Editors’ Choice¬†

“Recently sold to Champagne Bollinger, Ponzi is using the most recent releases to showcase the newly approved Laurelwood District AVA. Although the single-vineyard 2018 estate Chardonnays have already been released, this late breaking 2017 reserve is all-estate fruit and shows the same careful winemaking as all the earlier releases. Toasty flavors of nutmeg, Key lime, crisp pear and a lovely saline note combine gracefully, offering top-tier quality at a moderate cost.” – P.G.¬†

    Dick and Nancy Ponzi helped put Oregon on the wine map, and the Ponzi family has worked continuously for over 50 years leading and innovating in the region and, in the case of Pinot Noir, across the country and indeed the world. Today winemaker Luisa Ponzi continues her work with the family of Champagne Bollinger, which acquired the estate in 2021.
