This wine has a strong, but not over powering fruit flavor. The main flavors at the front of the palate are apple and pear. There is a slight vanilla flavor. The acidity is enough to bring the flavor to a sudden, but not too short end. The color is exactly what a Chardonnay should look like.

Brilliant straw in color, the 2008 Chardonnay is full-bodied and offers up layered aromas of red and green apple, pear, vanilla bean, blossoms and lemon meringue. The palate delivers balanced structure and a palate-cleansing acidity alongside bright fruit flavors backed by intense notes of caramel, toffee, spice and toasty oak. The smooth, rich finish is lintering and wraps up with hints of butter and toast thanks to the malolactic fermentation and sur lie maturation. - Winery

Long, intense flavors dominate this barrel-fermented wine. Aromas of buttered toast and fall fruits make this a fine Chardonnay.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Chardonnay exhibits ripe fruity flavors of pear, crisp green apple, vanilla and toasty caramel. A medium-bodied wine, approximately 70% is barrel-fermented to integrate fruit and oak flavors. Partial malolactic fermentation adds a rich texture and buttery component on the palate. Sonoma County Chardonnay is aged in the barrel for 6-8 months before bottling. Food Pairing: This Chardonnay is perfect for sipping alone or with fish, chicken or lighter pasta dishes. Enjoy lightly chilled - store in a cool place, then place in the refrigerator about a hour before serving.

Tasting Notes:

The full-bodied 2008 Calcaire, brilliant silver straw in hue, has intense aromas of apple blossom, pear, nutmeg spice and subtle roasted oak, with hints of vanilla and crème brûlée. Bright, vibrant flavors of pear, white peach and soft citrus are layered with oak spice and nuances of cream. This sumptuous Chardonnay has a rich, silky texture and long finish, complemented by balanced acidity and structure, which will allow it to develop additional complexity with bottle age.
