Gaja Rossj-Bass Chardonnay 2018
The famed Rossj-Bass is produced from Chardonnay grapes grown in estate-owned Rossj vineyard, named for Angelo Gaja's younger daughter Rossana (Rossj). Bass is Piedmontese for the Italian basso, meaning low, a name derived from the vineyard's position. Pheasants are featured on Rossj-Bass' label to commemorate the beautiful birds that inhabit the forests adjacent to Gaja's vineyards.
We tasted this bottling last week and absolutely fell in love with it. The Rossj-Bass is a Chardonnay unlike any other you will taste. A very special bottle indeed and we are honored to have a few.
Winery: Color: Golden. Aroma: Fine perfume of citrus fruits and flowers with a hint of honey. Taste: Considerable depth. Elegant body, definite character and good acidity; a fresh, lingering finish."
