Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

15’ Patz & Hall Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay. Bright golden color. Palate is full of pear, apple , almond, lemon candy. Moderate acidity & a lengthy finish. Without a doubt one of my favorite vineyards for Chardonnay. Drinking wonderful now! — 13 days ago

Navarro Vineyards

Première Reserve Anderson Valley Chardonnay 1990

Initially questionable, yet eventually transformative. Elegant red fruits, some VA, but impressive considering its age. — 14 days ago

The body is full, round, waxy and lush.

Belle Glos

Meiomi Méthode Champenoise Chardonnay - Pinot Noir Blend

Very solid bubbly at the under $20 price. Medium bubbles w a nice mousse. A touch of grassiness and a touch of dry and grassy flavors. I’m not getting the sweetness people have commented on. Nice stuff. I’d go w Roederer over this in a heartbeat at same price but this is intriguing. Also made a great French 75 after a glass by itself. — 11 days ago

One of the best Chardonnays i’ve had. Creamy texture with a lasting finish and acidity that is smooth. Not a big white wine guy but this was a perfect night cap. — 10 days ago
