A very decent, correct wine - in the varietal sense. Nice apple, peach and pear notes with light oak. Recommended to the neophyte for an introduction to Chardonnay as it should be in the quotidian sense.

Tropical, cremy fruit aromas. This full-bodied chard has melon, hazelnut and woody notes. Moderately acid and leaves a long crispy finish.

Mild acid with a hint of toastyness. Brighter wine with a tang. Not very creamy

2007 Chardonnay is amazing! Medium body, golden color, deep rich long lasting finish. Delicous and can beat many $20-30 dollar Chardonnays for half the price! The 2008...> Big Let down...An entirely different wine. The color, the density, the flavour is not worth the experience. Watered down middle of the road...Dissappointment.

Toasty lees scents carry through this clean, fresh Chardonnay, its lively fruit offering a grassy edge that keeps it breezy. The integration of the fruit and the oak holds the wine in balance, with neither dominant. A mild, crisp white for raw shellfish.

Well made in a popular style, blending citrus flavors and oak tones. The finish is balanced between fruit-cocktail sweetness and a drier, creamy mineral flavor.

Nice weight to the juicy pear fruit here, with pie crust and floral notes adding nuance to the crunchy finish. Drink now.

In the 19th century, the founder of the winery spread the rumor that his deepest cellar was the Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil) to keep his workers from sampling his greatest wines. Today, the cellar still holds the finest wines of Concho y Toro and this is a prime example of their high standards.

Bright and minerally, with floral, flint and green apple notes that stay lively through the finish. Nice, unadorned style. Drink now.

Forward and open knit, with modest green apple and floral notes. Therersquo;s a hint of lime candy on the finish. Drink now.

Gears up with basic aromas of apple and tropical fruit. The palate is round and a little syrupy in feel, with candied, sweet flavors of melon and banana. Has the weight and sweetness to offer mass appeal.
