This wine has what I would call a graceful nose, if you can smell smooth, this is what I also get. On a blind tasting I would immediately think this wine was a Sauvignon Blanc and not a Chardonnay. On going in a little deeper into the glass I get a distinct sharpness and a little mineral citrus – grapefruit I think. With my first taste, I found the wine full bodied with a steely, but smooth finish. It has an abundance of tropical fruit flavors and a sharp clean balance. I would suggest drinking this wine with shell fish or a strong brie or just alone working late. It all works. This is a very approachable wine, which makes it a very drinkable one! It is also a bit naughty because I seemed to drink more than one glass! It was all the wine's doing - honest

Bubble gum on the nose. Racy acidity on the palate. Well-balanced though, with sweet and sour fruit. Very mineral, with some strong vanilla from the oak. On the finish, some candied, preserved lemon.

Light yellow. Musky pear and mirabelle aromas are complicated by anise and lemon thyme. Gently chewy Saint-Veran, with ripe orchard fruit flavors and good mineral grip. Riper on the finish, leaving behind a sweet melon note. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2007 Girardin, Vincent Saint Veran 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright palish yellow. Sexy spices, lemon drop and crushed stone on the nose. Suave on entry, showing lovely energy and grip to the citrus and stone flavors. This juicy, mineral-driven wine finishes with terrific focus and lift and a light touch...91-93" IWC 09/10
