I’ve had this wine over the years. This one is mild on the nose with some apple/pear coming through. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice apple and pear to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some mild vanilla notes. This is a subtly oaked chard. Pretty close to an unoaked. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice dryness and some acidity. I would give it an -88. Not a great chard to my tastes. If I had others I would return them, I’m quite disappointed.
