James Suckling

Chunky and phenolic young wine with layers of tannins and dried apple with lemon zest and mineral character. It’s full and powerful like Grand Cru Burg, showing structure and intensity for long-term aging. Apple skin and citrus zest with pie crust. Better in 2025.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

The 2021 Chardonnay Trenton Roadhouse comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of apple pie, juicy peaches, and poached pears, followed by suggestions of sea spray, fresh ginger, and baker's yeast with a hint of acacia honey. The medium to full-bodied palate vibrates with fantastic energy, delivering layers of citrus, minerals, and spice backed up by a racy backbone, finishing long and steely. It needs time.

Vinous, Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Chardonnay Trenton Roadhouse is one of the more potent wines in this range. Fruit is pushed into the background in a Chardonnay that offers tons of mineral and savory intensity. Dried herbs, crushed flowers, rocks, and chamomile lend nuance throughout. The Trenton Roadhouse is not an obvious wine, but it is still super-impressive. Here, too, the density of the vintage is very much apparent.

Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate

The 2021 Chardonnay Trenton Roadhouse has delicate scents of white apricot and fresh quince with soft smoky undertones from a hint of youthful reduction. The palate is light-bodied with a singular, silky texture, vibrant acidity, a perfumed core of peachy fruit and a very long finish.
