Bright straw-yellow. Perfumed, precise aromas of orange and lime peel, chlorophyll, botanical herbs and minerals. Dense and fat in the style of this warm vintage but with uncanny energy and minerality leavening its creamy texture. Sexy soft citrus flavors are complicated by saline and spice notes. This tactile, chewy wine finishes brisk and long. Compares favorably to many premier crus from the Cote de Beaune at two or three times the price.
A rich, thick, velvety wine. The best white I have had in years. I just requested another case.

I put this wine in the cellar for my white wine drinking friends. On a very hot summer evening I opened a bottle for before dinner drinks. What a pleasant surprise to find a very light and crisp wine without the unpleasant white wine after taste.
Considering the price, the wine was a disappointment. Rather angular and lacking in fruit, especially for this vintage. I've had better wines from the Macon for half the price.

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...
