In a bold, toasty style, with notes of nutmeg, pie crust and pear tartine, but has the acidity to pull it off. Good job.

Lovely elegance here, with the toast and hazelnut notes playing second fiddle to the fig, pear and quince fruit. Stylish, juicy finish shows fine length. Drink now through 2003.

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.

This has solid concentration to the pear, fig and spice notes, with restrained toast carrying the lengthy finish. Has the fruit to win over most folks, and the nuance to hold them. Drink now through 2003.

Subtle at first, with toast and candied-pear notes, this slowly yields layers of apple, fig, honeysuckle and minerals, all carried by a long, juicy finish. This really opens up in the glass but stays remarkably elegant. Drink now.

Light gold. Exotic aromas of smoked meat, poached pear, yellow plum and oak spices. Weighty but precise on the palate, offering lively citrus and pit fruit flavors and a jolt of candied licorice. The oak spice repeats on the finish, which is broad and gently sweet.

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.
