92 Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "The regular bottling of Willamette Valley chardonnay from Seth Long in 2017 is composed of fruit from a hillside parcel in the Yamhill Vineyard that is planted on a Wente Clone that originated from Corton-Charlemagne. The fruit is picked at night and fermented with natural yeasts; the is aged in older barrels, with one-third comprised of "one wine" barrels and the other two-thirds several years older. The 2017 version comes in at thirteen percent octane and offers up a lovely nose of pear, apple, fresh almond, a fine base of soil tones and a topnote of white lilies. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and very precise, with a fine core, excellent transparency and cut, a nice hint of reductive elements and a long, complex and classy finish. Seth worked a stage with Etienne de Montille during his time in Burgundy, but it might as well have been with Jean-Marc Roulot in Meursault, given the style and class of this wine! 2019-2035+." 8/19
