External Reviews for Beaulieu Bv Coastal Chardonnay
Wine Enthusiast ReviewI love this Chard for its bright, brisk acidity that fires up the palate, only to reward it with ripe, delicious flavors of Key lime pie, kiwi and pineapple. Oak adds notes of buttered toast and vanilla. The result is rich, refined and complex, a Chardonnay to linger over.
Wine Tasting NotesMedium yellow-gold color. Strong pear and apple aromas typical of Carneros Chardonnay, combined with the rich toasty-vanilla and caramel scents from new oak and a hint of butteriness reflect the fine vintage conditions. Medium full-bodied texture, with rich fruit flavors complemented by nutty-vanilla and spice accents showcase bright acidity that leaves a refreshing note to the finish.
"Pale green-gold color. Fine, fresh apple-citrus aromas with a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied, the flavors match the aromas, with distinctive white peach and citrus elements that linger and provide wonderful refreshment.
Wine Tasting NotesThe first impression of this Chardonnay is of crisp apple, citrus and white floral perfume, followed by flavors of the same. The wine has a bright acidity, perfect for pairing with Caesar salad with grilled chicken, salmon in cream sauce, or pork roast.
