The Gr­gich Hills Es­tate 2015 Paris Tast­ing

Com­mem­o­ra­tive Chardon­nay (gr­gich.com) drinks like a white Bur­gundy and is made in the style Mil­jenko Gr­gich re­mem­bers from the time of the 1976 Judg­ment of Paris that put Napa Val­ley on the wine map. It also cel­e­brates Gr­gich’s con­tri­bu­tions to that event.

The grapes are grown in the es­tate’s old­est block of Chardon­nay, and acid is bal­anced with rich­ness but not too much oak. While 2015 chal­lenged Cal­i­for­nia grow­ers with drought and er­ratic tem­per­a­tures, the smaller berries were sur­vivors, full of verve. —JAN­ICE O’LEARY
