Light yellow.  Sexy, highly complex nose melds white peach, white truffle, hazelnut and baked bread.  Concentrated and quite ripe but juicy, with good mineral spine to the flavors of peach, lime and crushed stone.  The tactile minerality gives this wine an impression of dryness and very good grip.  Really dusts the palate with flavor on the long, subtle, sharply delineated finish.  This was bottled in February of this year.

This bottle was just the ticket. Beautiful light color, and a complex and addictive nose I couldn't stop sniffing. But the flavors stole the show - as they should. The wine was delicious all by itself, but worked wonderfully with the crab cakes. Clean, pure, and mineral-driven, this wine glided across the tongue and down the throat. I served it cooler than cellar temp, but not too chilled so it showed well. It definitely hit my sweet spot for this region's wines.

When grown in the cool clay-and-chalk soils around the sleepy town of Chablis, at the northern reach of Burgundy, Chardonnay is transformed into one of the world's most cerebral and distinctive white wines. With its brisk...

Chardonnay

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
