De Loach Chardonnay California 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The first wine bottled and sold direct from De Loach was the 1975 Zinfandel from the Barbieri Ranch. The winery and vineyards were originally owned and run by the De Loach family, with Cecil De Loach as winemaker. In 2003, the family-run Burgundian estate J-C Boisset bought De Loach and has since returned the estate to its original high quality winemaking philosophy. The focus is now firmly on small-lot winemaking, with particular emphasis on Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. This Chardonnay is bright, light gold in colour. The 2007 is a youthful wine with perfumes of melon and asian pear. On the palate it is rich and smooth with the weight on the mid-palate offset by a clean, fresh acidity. Attractive tropical fruits and a hint of spice on the finish.

87 Points - Wine Enthusiast Fruity and oaky, with easy flavors of grilled pineapples, buttered toast, vanilla and smoky oak. Shows real fanciness for the price. -Steve Heimoff, November 01, 2009.

Shows real fanciness for the price. -Steve Heimoff, November 01, 2009. 87 Points - Wine Spectator "Aromas of fresh-cut flowers, green apple and citrus are trim and crisp, giving this a clean, cleansing aftertaste. Drink now. 13,000 cases made." -James Laube, November 15, 2009.
