Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Bursting with caramel, orchard fruits, potpourri, baking spices and crushed river rocks, this mature Gaia & Rey marries its tertiary notes with its freshness. This golden wine unfurls on the palate with a silky feel to offer a bevy of complex notes; its saline minerality offsets its inner perfume, and its slightly oxidized mouth-feel complements its vibrant acidity. This is a fine aged Chardonnay that does its maker, Angelo Gaja, proud. Deriving from Gaja’s almost nine-acre Treiso vineyard planted in 1979, this wine is named for Angelo Gaja’s oldest daughter, Gaia Gaja, and his grandmother, Clotilde Rey. Gaia & Rey ferments with naturally occurring yeasts, and ages for 6-8 months in oak barrels. This is an intensely age-worthy wine, developing tertiary notes of nuts, butter and caramel with age.
