External Reviews for Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay
A well-made earthy, oaky wine with a funky, toasty nose, medium green-apple flavors and a spicy, toasty finish. It delivers all this, but it doesnrsquo;t quite go the extra mile. Consequently it suffers from being too moderate overall.
Fresh, snappy and vibrant, with ripe pear, melon and citrus notes that are pure and focused. Ends with a fresh, fruity aftertaste. Drink now.
Fresh and vibrant, with ripe peach, nectarine and pear notes that are crisp and mouthwatering. Drink now.
Bright yellow-gold color. Full-blown aromas of apricot and peach compote. Fat, round and sweet, with pineapple and honey flavors. In a rather oily, unrestrained style.
A lovely Chardonnay to drink tonight, this one, from the wineryrsquo;s fine Carneros vineyard on the Napa side, shows bright, mineral-infused pineapple, lime and spicy clove and pepper flavors. The acidity will balance a rich dish, such as seared scallops in a coconut-curry sauce.
Faintly musky, complex nose combines smoke, flint and fresh herbs. Fat, sweet, lush and generous, with nicely integrated ripe acids framing the lime and fresh herb flavors. Finishes with subtle length.
A beautiful Chardonnay with powerful tropical fruit, lime, nectarine, apricot and new oak flavors. Firmer acidity than you usually get from Carneros. This is a sleek, elegant wine, with a bracing streak of steely minerality. Kudos to owner Jan Shrem for putting it into a screwcap.
