Marcus Goodfellow’s labels have been mainstays at the shop for some time now. When the Wine Advocate’s review for the 2014 Richard’s Cuvee Chardonnay came out, we can’t say we were particularly surprised. As you’d expect the 750’s of the Richard’s sold out in a flash, but it turns out that the winery had a number of cases of half bottles that no one has pounced on. Lucky for you, we’ve scooped up the last available from the winery, so once these are gone, they’re gone. In the meantime, this in-its-prime Chardonnay will make a beautiful wine to buy in bulk—the half bottles just make it that much more convenient.

Wine Advocate 95 points “The 2014 Chardonnay Richard’s Cuvee knocks it out of the park with a nose of ripe apricots, pink grapefruit and guavaunderscored by fresh ginger, baking bread, beeswax and yeast extract hints with a waft of jasmine. Medium-bodied, the palate is very elegant and refined, with incredible freshness and depth wrapped in a lovely satiny texture, finishing with long lasting mineral and spices layers. Wow!”
