Press and Tasting Notes

This is one of the best Chardonnay's being produced today. So little of each vintage is imported, there is never enough Gaja Rossj-Bass to last the year.

THE REVIEW

When Gaja reds are released once a year, people scramble to find these limited production wines. They are some of the most iconic and collectible reds in Italy. That said, you haven't lived until you have experienced Gaja's Montrachet-like Chardonnay. If there were Grand Cru vineyard designations in Italy, Rossj would certainly be one.
    I first enjoyed this wine 10 years ago and look forward to each and every release. Elegant and vibrant with a Burgundian influence, Gaja's Rossj-Bass is distinctly Italian in its texture and finish.
    Predominantly Chardonnay with a pinch of Sauvignon Blanc to enhance the minerality, Rossj abounds with young apple, pear, citrus and honeysuckle. Roasted nut, lemon zest and fresh honey aromas add a hint of body to an otherwise elegant white that lingers on the palate.
    From oysters, lobster, fish to fowl, you can enjoy this exceptional white now through 2020. Don't be afraid to enjoy this wine on the warmer side of cold as great whites can stand up to the slightly warmer temperature.
    If you are looking for a little more oak and touch more body, Gaja's most collectible Chardonnay, Gaia & Rey , will feel like your favorite pair of hand-crafted Italian shoes.Read More »
