Hyde de Villaine (HdV) is a collaboration between two of the wine world's most coveted producers: the de Villaine Family of DRC (Domaine de la Romanée-Conti) and the Hyde Family from Napa Valley.
From a select parcel on the east hill slope of the highly sought-after Hyde Vineyard, these two wine powerhouses (united through marriage) have crafted a world-class California Chardonnay.
Montrachet or Napa Valley?
Fresh citrus, lemon zest and white peach aromas on the nose lead to a silky yet mineral driven palate of bright stone fruit, young pear and freshly-picked apples. A delicate hint of modest wood sits on the finish along with exceptionally balanced and integrated components. With a bit of saline, you'll delight in the sophistication of this Napa Chardonnay, which expresses itself with a touch of DRC finesse.
In one sensational Chardonnay, you get the best elements of Burgundy and Carneros melded into one. Precise acidity, flinty minerality, and unparalleled length from the Burgundian influence are juxtaposed by the unctuous texture, wonderful orchard fruit, and poached pear from the Carneros terroir.
