Exotic, with vanilla, toasty oak and dried pineapple character that turns to apple tart flavors. Full-bodied, thick and oily, with an almost late-harvest character. Comes across almost off-dry. Slightly overdone in this hot year. Drink now.

Ten months in French barrique have imparted overtones of vanilla and toasted hazelnuts to this powerful Chard. Intense aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, butterscotch, caramel and peach flesh it out. Ripe, soft and lush, try this Chardonnay with sophisticated dishes with a butter or béchamel base.

This full-throttle Chardonnay shows all-out barrel fermentation and bâtonnage character. Big and round, with lots going on in the glass. Finishes with opulent honey, caramel and butterscotch character. Drink now.

I am going to join the multitudes of wine journalists who have extolled the virtues of this wine and tip my hat to the extraordinary Planeta Chardonnay. The style is completely unique. A honeyed-golden color not found in most young whites (usually an indication of maturity, it may confuse some wine drinkers - this is not old wine, it is great wine!). Intentionally made with some oxidation, the striking dark color extends to the explosive taste and feel on the palate. A show stopper, this white struts like a well-aged grand cru Burgundy - standing 17 hands high with tremendous power and charm (excuse the horse analogy, but this wine transports me away from mere taste descriptors) OK, I'll try - super rich tropical fruit, along with roasted hazelnuts, mouthwatering ripe pears and something... profound.
