Nicely balanced on the nose with apple, soft wood spice, sandy earth and light smoke tones. On the palate this is big and really fruit driven with a bit of butteriness up front but gets tense and lean on the back end with great purity to the apple and almost peachy fruit. Sinewy on the finish. 91pts

Light bright yellow. Initially shy orange pear honeysuckle and mineral aromas gain strength with aeration. Light-bodied orchard and pit fruit flavors are easygoing but a bit loose-knit with vague bitter/sweet qualities on the back end.

Wine Tasting NotesBurgundian in sensibility but with California style is one way of describing Jim Clendenen's Chardonnays- Structure and restraint melded with bountiful opulence is another. In the glass, buttery brioche marries with tropical fruits in an irresistible elixir that will leave the bottle drained before you know it. Try it with turbo for a match of delicacy and richness.

The style of this wine combines the richness of a California Chardonnay with the crisp beautiful finish of a white French Burgundy. Fruit from Jims Le Bon Climat Vineyard. - Winery
