Romance Domaine de la Côte Chardonnay

@Delectablewine This is RPWC’s Romance Chardonnay. Made from the first vintage of new plantings at Domaine de la Cote. In the Sandhi style. Light in color. Intensely lemon/lime, wet limestone, sea air. Assertive acid, especially up front, but balanced with a nice creamy roundness. — 3 days ago

Sangiacomo Vineyards Chardonnay 2018

Maybe the best thing I could say is that if I liked big Cali chards, I would love this. Its beautifully made, I respect it. Its actually not huge, & restrained in so many ways. On nose-ripe starfruit & mango; On palate-Ripe mango, banana (?) blended with iodine & taffy. Medium acid, strong mid palate. Tried it cold & tried a tic above room temp. Prefer colder, as hides some of the tropical fruits, which aren’t my fave. To be fair, I think I would give higher score if this fit my flavor profile better. Its reasonably priced. Good with food-paired with a cavatelli dish with cooked squash & garlic. — 2 days ago

Private Selection Aged in Bourbon Barrels Monterey County Chardonnay 2019

Very nice. Full body, with a well balance taste. Would compare this to some much pricier wines. Will definitely put this in the rotation. — 10 days ago


Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Absolutely beautiful. Could be mistaken for grand cru Chablis. Mineral and lemon. When this warmed up to room temperature it revealed layers of flavor and texture. Raw, unripe almonds, a little bit of citrus. Very little oak, if any. — 5 days ago

Rita's Crown Chardonnay 2014

Awesome! Cork appeared soaked through but didn’t seem to impact the wine. Rich flavors of butter, cream, and vanilla. Very white burg like. Great QPR! — 21 days ago

Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2020

Excellent QPR for a minimally oaked style. Bright and tropical. Lemon, mango, and guava but not overly concentrated. These Santa Barbara wines are offering a taste of the domestic “old world”. Impressed for $23. — 5 days ago

Central Coast Chardonnay 2019

This is an outstanding Chardonnay! Beautifully balanced, with a complexity of fruit flavors laced into a spicy, full bodied wine with the right amount of oak.m so that it’s not overpowering. Love it! Tasted 9 May 2022 — 6 days ago

Riverstone Arroyo Seco / Monterey Chardonnay 2019

Delicious! Tastes more like a light, semi-funky, semi-dry cider fan a chardonnay. — 15 days ago
