Friedrich Becker 2016 Mineral Chardonnay (Pfalz)

Cellar Selection

Smoky tones of struck flint and toast linger from nose to finish in this gorgeously steely Chardonnay. Moderately full-bodied yet piercing and focused, it's marked by zesty flavors of green apple and lemon etched by streaks of lime and chalk. Tasted in late 2020, it's a bit nervous in youth but should be at peak from 2023–2030 and hold longer still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
