Au Bon Climat

Nuits-Blanches au Bouge Santa Maria Valley Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2001

Incredible, my first aged CA #chardonnay #santamariavalley from a famous producer. A magnum aged 21 years onsite at the winery proved spectacular. Golden yellow in glass. Nose explodes with honeysuckle, marizpan, quince paste, preserved lemon. Opulent texture on palate, honeyed apple & citrus, vibrant acidity and wet stone finish. — 21 days ago

Reserva Privada Chardonnay 2019

#Chardonnay had a little barnyard at first whiff. But that blew off with time in the glass. The palate had pineapple and citrus notes. It paired nicely with grilled #lobster. The husband said the salt on the French fries made it come alive. 8.7 out of 10 — 5 months ago

Domaine Louis Michel & Fils

Montmain Chablis Premier Cru Chardonnay

Lemon smoke, pith and zested peel, green beans, wax bean, lime, pestelled chive, chunky seltzer. Speedy and clean palate shows lime and lemon citrus, underripe green pear, lime pith, chalky pink grapefruit, salinity, orchid stem. Great wine with plunging depth, spritely while well defined and deftly crafted. A joy.

Domaine Jean-François Quénard

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

White gold glints over chatelaine. Pineapple peers through a steely mask, jasmine and magnolia softly breathe through winter’s nostrils. Meyer lemon suggestions turn zest and pith on the palate; key lime invoked. Grapefruit veins of pith peel back slowly to reveal lightning streaks of complex citruses, and squash blossom stem.

Les Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2019

Lemon custard narrows on the nose to Meyer lemon pith, lime zest, pomelo, gun flint glints with alumina, marmalade mix. Tart lemon palate puckers to a kiss of lemongrass awash in a lemon-lime sea of brine; spongey lemon pith finish.

Wester Reach Chardonnay 2018

Gorgeous #russianrivervalley #chardonnay - fresh and baked apple, honeyed lemon notes on nose - beautiful, fresh acidity on frame, lovely medium-bodied mouthfeel, subtle butterscotch notes. This is one of my benchmarks for excellent #sonomacounty Chard. — 7 months ago
