Top 6 Chardonnay Tasted 10/13

6. Schug Chardonnay Carneros (2012)

« Prev 6 of 6
Average price: $24.99 from 112 stores
Tight and earthy on the nose with faint aromas of pear fruit grounded by a base of soil tones with smoky, leesy, floral accents. Showing lovely integration in the mouth, there’s subtle oak imprint here adding nuance to the slightly creamy and yet fresh fruit. Showing off apple and unripe pineapple flavors framed with gentle suggestions of green herbs and lime zest, this flows across the palate with gentle ease finishing with fine energy and some mouth grabbing tannins. Gentle and very honest feeling, this is a wine that relies on savory flavors as much as the fruit with not that much winemaking in evidence. 91pts

  • 1308420VixenofVine Leucadia Red has a 2010 Chardonnay for only $16.00/bottle and it is delish. Here's the description from their website: Bright, fresh and beautifully balanced with an enticing combination of green apple, ripe pear and Meyer lemon. Light vanilla toast and asian spice flavors lead to a precisely balanced finish. I love the label artwork as well - so fresh and inspiring!
