This was opened and we enjoyed a few glasses before recorking and reapproaching 24 hours later, at which point it was really singing. Yellow peach, pear and medley of orchard fruit, layered with pressed yellow flowers, dried persimmon, and notes of vanilla and bourbon. So delicate. Such fine bubbles. Saltwater taffy and some caramel and rock salt on the palate. Subtle tannic echo. Mesmerizing. — a month ago
Hope I’ve selected the correct wine.
Birthday celebration for my soulmate. Cristal always delivers.
Coming up to room temp. Warm bread notes on the nose and palate. Balance personified on the mid palate. Soft bubbles combine with apples and mild peach. Grossly understated. Love it… — a month ago
Medium caramel color. Enchanting aromas and flavors of dried and jellied peach, dried and jellied bitter orange and dried and jellied apricot. Additional hints of banana, chocolate, nuts and burnt caramel, which leads to a slightly smoky finish. Bright and vibrant (but beautifully balanced) acidity. Beautifully rich texture and mouthfeel. Luscious. Just outstanding! Really appreciate you sharing this one, Ron B! — a month ago
Pale lemon color with aromas of ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and spice scents. On the palate complex flavors of apple, peach, pineapple and lemon citrus, well balanced with acidity on a nice mouthfeel. Long finish ending with oak, vanilla, mineral and citrus notes, will continue to age. A beautiful Chardonnay. Pair this with a Swordfish steak topped with balsamic roasted tomatoes. — a month ago
Jorge Ordonez is consistent and fairly priced always. Ripe pear, peach, citrus, acid. Food friendly but fine on its own. — 2 months ago
Juicy green apple and crisp slate over a hint of white peach. Light and refreshing. — 3 months ago
