One of my favorite Chardonnay's ... Deep oak taste, buttery flavor.

The color is golden straw, and the nose is big and rich, accentuated by butterscotch, hazelnut and toasted coconut. Meanwhile, the palate is clean and fresh with a nice rich texture and notes of spicy pears, tropical fruit and crisp apple on the fin... Geoffrey Binder.

Here is a nicely managed Chardonnay that captures the typically sweet fruit and weighty richness of the Santa Lucia Highlands version, and it does so without being too much of a good thing. It is optimally ripened and decked out with plenty of sweet ... Connoisseurs' Guide. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2008 Mer Soleil Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 750ml

An earthy note kicks this off, with a range of tangerine, nectarine and spicy fruit flavors following. Keeps its focus and gains complexity on the long, lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2002.

A full-blown Chardonnay, opulent, lush and creamy, displaying juicy fig, tangerine, pear, pineapple and melon flavors that are neatly layered and persist for a long finish, where pretty notes of toasty oak fold in. Delicious. Drink now through 2004.

This shows the ripe tropical fruit of a fine vintage, yet maintains the keen citrusy acidity that makes this vineyard's Chards so balanced and ageworthy. Beneath the pineapple marmalade, apricot and caramelly oak flavors is a rich, flinty minerality that cries out for lobster.
