Top Super Premium Chardonnay Tasted 7/2013

8. La Crema Russian River Valley Chardonnay (2011)

« Prev 8 of 8
Average price: $27.99 from 21 stores
Fresh and a bit tart on the nose with green apple, baked apple and spicy wood aromas. This enters the mouth with racy acids that keep a palate full of sweet toasty oak spice, baked apple, ripe kiwi and lime curd flavors quite lively. Offering a nice combination of bright open knit textures and moderately rich flavors, this stumbles a bit on the modest finish which shows floral leesy character and a nice pop of minerality on the final. 89pts

  • 917215ScottAdams56 I'm a fan of the 2008 Gundlach Bundschu Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. Comes very close to comparable with Rombauer, my all-time favorite for the oakey/buttery chards.

  • 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.
