The full-bodied 2008 Calcaire, brilliant silver straw in hue, has intense aromas
of apple blossom, pear, nutmeg spice and subtle roasted oak, with hints of
vanilla and crème brûlée. Bright, vibrant flavors of pear, white peach and
soft citrus are layered with oak spice and nuances of cream. This sumptuous
Chardonnay has a rich, silky texture and long finish, complemented by
balanced acidity and structure, which will allow it to develop additional
complexity with bottle age.
