Artesa Chardonnay Carneros 2007
I am just in general not an Oaky chardonay fan. This is an oaky chard with buttery flavors and a fair amount of residual sugar. Not at all cisp due to the malolactic fermentation.

Spicy oak on the nose. Nice spicy cinnamon and pear over the lovely chardonnay fruit. Nice. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 10/16/10
External Reviews for Artesa Chardonnay Carneros
Lemon blossoms, green apple, ripe pineapple and honeydew melon are front and center in this Chardonnay. This crisp fruitiness is combined with nuances of vanilla topped cream brulee, butter, and toast
Fragrant floral green apple and pear flavors are delicate and spicy. Medium- to full-bodied sleek and focused with a long persistent finish that keeps fruit purity at the center. Drink now through 2012. 33000 cases made.JL90 points Wine Spectator.

Lemon blossoms, green apple, ripe pineapple and honeydew melon are front and center in this Chardonnay. This crisp fruitiness is combined with nuances of vanilla topped cream brulee, butter, and toasted oak making this wine both easy to enjoy and seductively complex. Silky supple with lingering flavors, yet a tingle of crisp acid on the finish; a great accompaniment for food and friends.
Wine Tasting NotesThe Chardonnay shows ripe apple and pear varietal character highlighted with typical Carneros traits of tropical fruit and rich citrus. The palate is broad with creamy vanilla, complex fruit and a lon juicy finish
