Au Bon Climat HIldegard Estate Bottled White

2018 Au Bon Climat HIldegard Estate Bottled White...$35.99
The 2018 White Hildegard Estate is an unusual blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Aligoté meant to recreate Burgundy's fabled Charlemagne vineyard in Medieval times. Bright and finely cut, Hildegard shows another side to Jim Clendenen's magic touch. Lemon peel, white flowers, white pepper and crushed rocks give the 2018 a striking aromatic top register to match its mid-weight personality. In a word: sublime.
Rated 95/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
