External Reviews for Raymond Reserve Chardonnay Ultimate Wine Shop
Plenty of lemon and other tart citrus flavors that almost turn sour on the finish. Modest complexity and no shortage of highly toasty vanilla oak. Drink now.
A grassy style, with hay, citrus, herb and mineral flavors at the fore. Bright and crisp, though lacking finish and complexity. A touch bitter at the end.
Sweet and sour, with lemon rind, spicy baked pear and yellow apple flavors highlighted by cedar and vanilla from oak. Drink now.
A subtle wine that's correct and balanced, with a narrow band of spicy pear and vanilla flavors. Not as ripe and opulent as Raymond usually is. Drinkable now.
It's all about extract in this kick-in-the-pants Chard. Assaults the palate with oversized fruit and the sting of peppery spice. Words like bright, electric and bold come to mind. it's also sweet and oaky.
Tasty, with rich, lively lemon and pippin apple flavors that pick up a hint of creaminess on the finish, where the flavors gain complexity. Drink now.
Pretty good Chard, rich and creamy, with a vanilla custard thickness balanced by bright acidity. The flavors? Ripe and full, including pineapples, guavas, peaches and dusty spices.
