Top Super Premium Chardonnay Tasted 7/2013

1. Gary Farrell Russian River Chardonnay (2010)

Average price: $34.99 from 7 stores
Smokey and dry on the nose with a rather transparent quality that allow the wood to come through quite distinctly but it’s very fine wood, not sweet and toasty barrel, paired with gentle floral, butter and spice accents. Relatively rich on entry, this packs superb acids and opens with very ripe yet very fresh apple and almost honeydew melony fruit backed up well integrated wood spice that carries the wine onto the long, zesty notably vibrant and peach toned and spicy finish. This is really gorgeous today with a fine combination of power, vibrancy and depth, my only knock is that it does show a touch of heat on the long finish. 93pts

  • 1298842Jerry Airheart I've tasted the La Crema Chardonnay and they are excellent choices.


  • 1061054MrClogg Though it is not a California Chardonnay, I'd would like to give credit to an incredibly good Chardonnay from New York's Benmarl winery, in the Hudson Valley. Their 2011 Apis Chardonnay, which underwent a brief maceration and minimal oak, creates a rich, full bodied cool climate Chardonnay comparable to a lot of the great Californian chardonnays.
