Had the ‘08, ‘11 and ‘13 together—all holding up great, citrus driven with very good acid, gentle toast, even the ‘08 not really slowing down. Slight edge to the ‘11

This is a stunning bottle. Citrus, Meyer lemon, clean minerals and toasted brioche, full bodied Chardonnay that possesses the structure to take it another decade? Glad I kept three!

From a bottle "coravined" 15 months ago. My mind is blown. Better than I remembered it. Tropically buttered toast at its finest.

Lovely textured, and butterscotch, Bright honeydew melon and lemon chiffon, as well, it's one of those things that make you mmmmm.

I had an off bottle of this wine a few weeks ago, but this one was fine. Golden colour, full-bodied wine with a good finish. Not a buttery Chardonnay, but rather a citrusy one. Nose not too complex, but good flavours. The wine is fully mature and managed to hold the drinkers' interest throughout the meal.

Great balance for the style, and complex aromas of pineapple, lemon curd, vanilla and toast. A bit hot for my taste though.
