This one is quite pale in color mild on the nose with some mild chard smells coming through. On the mid pallet are citrus flavors, slightly tart. This one is more like a sauv blanc would taste than a chard. Not a bad wine, but not a good chard either. The finish was on the lighter side of medium. I would give it an 88 or so simply because I think a chard ought to taste like a chard. I won’t be running out to grab more.

Tasting Note
Citrus-, peach-, apple-, toast and mango-scented Chardonnay with a lovely round and ripe texture on the palate. Mid-palate acids come in to bring a fine balance. It’s fairly full bodied and has a long fruity/oaky finish. Try it with grilled chicken with a wild mushroom sauce. (VINTAGES panel, July 2009)
