I agree with the notes on the nose from Vegas Oenophile, definite developed fruit leaning towards pineapple. It was a great companion to some Mediterranean appetizers both for the balanced oak, and for its general ability to please a table of 6 equally.

The 2005 Chardonnay "Cuvee Alexandre - Atalayas Vineyard" is a refined wine with nuances of vanilla, buttered toast, butterscotch, and tropical fruit flavors along with well-integrated oak. This nicely balanced, layered wine should drink well for the next 18-24 months.

Rich and stylish, with pear, fig, hazelnut and brioche notes that run through the rich, lengthy finish. A nice mineral hint really stretches it out. Drink now.

Focused and elegant, with deceptive length and power, this lets lush apple, pear, fig and toast notes stretch along languidly, yet never becomes tiring to drink. Well done. Drink now through 2006.

Light to medium-bodied and silky textured, the 2003 Chardonnay Cuvee Alexandre Atalayas Vineyard offers aromas of spiced pear and vanilla. Fresh apple, pear and oak notes are found in its expressive, well-crafted core. Drink it over the next year.

As Chilean Chardonnays go, this single-vineyard bottling from Lapostolle is smooth and toasty, with plenty of vanilla, smoke and tropical fruit aromas. The vintage was a good one, and that's reflected in the wine's body, which is hefty and broad but nicely balanced by freshening acids. If you like vanilla and toast accenting ripe New World flavors, this is for you.

Very stylish, with nice underlying richness as the suave toast melds into the pear tartine, Jonagold apple and floral notes. The long, creamy finish has nice lingering minerality. Drink now through 2010.

Buttery and rich, this is probably Lapostolle's best Chardonnay to date; it has sweet, alluring baked pear, apple and peach aromas followed by an intensely toasty but balanced palate that shows flavors of papaya, banana, pear and fine French oak. A wine to drink as soon as you can pop the cork.
