"This fascinating wine reveals Seth’s passion for Champagne and the age-old technique of using “reserve” wines to blend with younger vintages, thus presenting a house style, which is one of the core components of terroir. This wine will NEVER be produced as a sparkling wine, however. Aged in a non-oxidative solera format, the goal here is to present the soul of the winery and winemaker by reducing the influence of vintage and vineyard site.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of chalk, oyster shells, lemongrass, saffron, lemongrass and white grapefruit. Polished minerals and preserved white citrus flavors shimmer with energy above six vintages of depth, seamlessly woven together, smooth, sleek and dense.
Vintage Notes: thirty-four lots of wines blended from seven vineyards over six successive vintages." - Distributor Notes

"This is the second release of the “Memorie” bottling of chardonnay from Seth Long. The wine is produced from a solera that Seth started with in the 2015 vintage (with just a whisper of 2014 juice added at the outset) so it is a multi-vintage blend that will get more complex with each passing year. The fruit comes from seven different vineyards and the blend is now composed of six different vintages so it is progressing geometrically at this point. The breakdown of vintages in the blend this year runs thus: twenty-one percent 2019 twenty-two percent 2018 twenty-three percent 2017 ten percent 2016 twenty-three percent 2015 and a whisper of 2014 juice. The wine offers up a beautiful nose wafting from the glass in a blend of apple lemon hazelnut a complex base of soil elements honeysuckle citrus zest and a hint of oak. On the palate the wine is bright full-bodied focused and complex with a lovely core fine soil undertow zesty acids and a long poised and beautifully balanced finish. I love the backend lift here! Unlike several of the youthful 2019s from Seth this year the Memorie II is drinking just splendidly right from the outset and will require no patience before it is savored. However it has an excellent spine of acidity and will have no difficulties also aging gracefully in bottle! Stunning juice. 2021-2040+." - John Gilman
