Ste. Chapplelle Chardonnay Snake River Valley 2008

External Review:

Rating: 78/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Austere and essentially empty save for a mildly matchsticky note in the nose and some pithy bitterness and biting chemical heat in its otherwise thin and patently unfruity flavor, this hard, acid-bound wine misses the varietal mark by a mile and is easily left on the shelf.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
