Wine Spectator ReviewRated 88Sleek and focused, with subtle pear, melon and honeysuckle notes that are medium-weight, ending with a burst of flavor and a touch of minerality. Drink now through 2012.Wine Tasting NotesMade entirely from fruit grown at our estate vineyard, the Chardonnay is an extremely fine and delicate wine with aromas of stone fruit and brioche. Ten months of sur lie aging in 100 percent French oak barrels gives texture and imparts complex aromas of stone fruits, vanilla and hazelnut. As is typical of Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay, the acidity is firm and bright and the wine possesses gobs of minerality from our unique limestone site, making this an age-worthy Chardonnay.I like to call Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay the white wine for red wine drinkers. Its rich flavors, distinctive minerality and crisp acidity make it a versatile wine to complement rich, robust dishes such as pasta in cream sauces, roasted salmon, grilled chicken breast and pork chops.

We're certain that you'll enjoy this Chardonnay. It's fresh appeal, touch of vanilla oak and bright apple and pear fruit character will please many palates. Chalone's wines are highly acclaimed and very well-made. This white is exemplary of their winemaking standards and offers a glance into their portfolio.
