Chuck Wagner of Caymus first released Mer Soleil Chardonnay with the 1992 vintage. This 1997 offering marks the sixth consecutive outstanding version, and the Chardonnay's first appearance on out Top 100.
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.
Ripe, rich and expressive style, with loads of tropical fruit, pear, fig, apricot and buttery oak, all neatly woven together. The texture is smooth and polished, with a long, detailed, citrusy aftertaste. Drink now through 2006.
Starts with exotic aromas of apricot, tropical fruit, crushed spices, coconut and vanilla. Drinks creamy and opulent, with flavors of peach and apricot. Wonderful balance and complexity, and the finish is long and intense.
Layered aromas of mango, peach, nectarine and citrus dominate the nose, underscored by more subtle notes of honey, caramel and light smoke. The wine is fresh and citrusy on entry, deepening and becoming richer on the mid-palate as flavors of lemon creme brulée, sone fruits and creamy butter fold in. The finish is long and complex, combining notes of honey and citrus with a lush, mouthfilling texture.
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.

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
