"Marzipan and spicy tweaks from the wood with a subtle creaminess that is not yet fully integrated. Some ripe, spiced pineapples and lemon rind on the fruit side. Quite flavorful and round with a saline twist to the medium- to full-bodied palate. Medium levels of acidity allow it to maintain its freshness. Better in 2024." - Tasted on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 by James Suckling

"The 2021 Jade Dove Single Vineyard Chardonnay from Xige has a deep lemon appearance. On the nose, there is lifted, ripe stone fruit—peach, touch of apricot—and lemon peel with some new oak notes of clove, vanilla and toast (the 2021 vintage having seen 12 months in 20% new French Burgundy pièces with the remainder being matured in one-year-old barrels of the same size, i.e., 300 liters). On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with some lifting acidity—only 30% of the wine went through malolactic conversion—and a reasonable core of rich Chardonnay fruit is complemented by the hints of new oak. There’s also a creaminess of lees enhancing the texture. I’ve said in other reviews that there is a danger of looking at these warmer-climate Chardonnays through the monocular vision of cool-climate expressions. It’s better to think of these wines as akin to traditional California Chardonnay of the old school but with modern winemaking precision. While the 14.5% alcohol is a bit warming on the finish with a touch of phenolic character, this is nonetheless a well-made and compelling expression of Ningxia Chardonnay. With its relatively moderate length, the 2021 is drinking well now and may also improve marginally in bottle over the next 2-3 years." - Tasted on Jan 26, 2024 by Edward Ragg

Wine Review: This wine is crafted with meticulous care, selecting 20-year-old vines of Chardonnay from the West Pigeon Vineyard. On the palate, it offers a refreshing and clean entry with balanced acidity. It exhibits aromas of sweet melon, grapefruit, and hints of creamy and toasty notes.

"杏仁和木香中帶有一點微妙的奶油質感,尚未完全融合。有一些成熟的香料菠蘿和柠檬皮香氣。口感相當富有層次,中到豐满,還帶有鹹味。中等酸度保持清新感。2024年後會更好。" - 2023年11月7日由James Suckling品鑑

"2021年Jade Dove單一園區霞多麗葡萄酒呈現深黃色。香氣中有清新的成熟石果香氣——桃子、一點杏子,還有柠檬皮和新橡木香氣,如丁香、香草和烘焙味。在口感上酒體豐满,酸度適中(只有30%進行了malo-lactic發酵),富有霞多麗葡萄的層次感,與新橡木香氣相得益彰。酒質還呈現出一些來自酒渣的華滑感。我在其他評論中提到過,我們不應該單一地用涼爽氣候的霞多麗葡萄酒來評判這種更溫暖地區的霞多麗。不如把它們當成是傳統加州風格但又有現代釀酒技術的霞多麗。雖然14.5%的酒精度在收尾時略顯溫暖,並帶有一點單寧,但這仍然是一款非常出色的寧夏霞多麗。這款2021年鑒於其相對中等的陳年潛力,現在就喝很不錯,未來2-3年也會稍有改善。" - 2024年1月26日由Edward Ragg品鑑
