Top Super Premium Chardonnay Tasted 7/2013

2. Topel Chardonnay Reserve Classique Mendocino (2009)

« Prev Next » 2 of 8
Previously available for $35.00
Bright and high toned on the nose with a very fine overlay of oak, a hint of green tea and layers of marzipan, dried orange peel and sweet apple fruit. Bright acids appear on entry followed by a little buttered toast with green apple fruit that gains hints of apple butter, toasted hazelnut and lemon curd on the midpalate. This offers up a lovely mouthfeel, blending brightness with a light leesy richness yet remain fresh and precise through the moderately 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.
