J. Rochioli Chardonnay Russian River Valley Estate Grown 2000

Member Review by WineWatcherUSA:

Interesting California Chardonnay - not really for sipping. I would definitely pair this with a meal due to the nutty flavors on the palette. Smooth finish.

With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit. The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine. Read less

The superb, unfiltered, indigenous yeast-fermented 2000 Chardonnay Estate is the finest Rochioli regular bottling I have tasted. It is similar to many grand cru white Burgundies, possessing wonderful freshness, an outstanding texture, medium to full body, and new oak, white peach, honeyed citrus, and tropical fruit characteristics. Drink this pure Chardonnay over the next 4-5 years.
