At first just terrible- crazy acidic (14.9% alcohol) but as it aired (20 mins) it finally started to taste better. Pale gold with green apple & nectarine on the tongue with a touch of butter- medium body but still quite acidic. Was this 2010 turning? Not great but not too bad at the end. At end of dinner it was much better- went from 8.7 to 8.8

Very good Chardonney. Not too much oak or too much butter.
