Chardonnay Casablanca 2007
External Reviews for Chardonnay Casablanca
Mittelgelb. Einnehmende Nasenaromatik mit einerseits Düfte nach Zitrusfrüchte erinnernd, auch Melone, anderseits feine Röstaromen, Toastbrot. Fülliger Gaumen mit einer typischen Chardonnay-Aromatik, reife Birnen, Passionsfrucht, buttrige Noten, aromatisch bis ins Finale.
Very juicy and fresh, with toasted apple, piecrust, hazelnut and butter notes that stay focused on the friendly finish. A crowd-pleaser.
Light, bright gold. Intriguing aromas of white peach, truffle, ginger and iodine, with hints of flowers and sweet butter. Dense and tactile, with an invigorating thread of smoky minerality giving the oily pit fruit and spice flavors a steely quality. The finish repeats the iodine and floral notes and lingers with excellent persistence. I'd love to taste this next to a high-end Saint-Aubin, or even a Chassagne-Montrachet.
Rich barrel aromas control the nose, and the offshooting toast, vanilla and roasted nut scents are familiar and controlled. The flavors are of tempered citrus and nectarine, while the finish has a creamy character along with a breeze of the tropics. Smooth and round mouthfeel.
90 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Green-tinged yellow. Strikingly complex aromas of spiced pear apple floral honey and smoky lees. Fleshy orchard fruit and orange flavors are given spine by tangy minerals and gain an intriguing herbal quality on the back end. The mineral note lingers on the long juicy finish.
The light gold-colored 2007 Chardonnay Wild Ferment is 100% barrel-fermented but with only 17% new oak where the wine remained for 10 months. It has an expressive bouquet of buttered toast, spiced apple, and white peach leading to a surprisingly elegant, medium-bodied Chardonnay with tangy flavors and a long, pure finish. It can be enjoyed over the next three years. Errazuriz has been making impressive strides under the inspired leadership of the soft-spoken Eduardo Chadwick. He has gathered a superb team of viticultural and winemaking talent for Errazuriz as well as his luxury wines, Sena and Vinedo Chadwick.
