"A beautiful Chardonnay with so much class and elegance, it’s a bargain at this price. Shows lush flavors of pineapple crème brûlée, Meyer lemon custard and vanilla sorbet, balanced with crisp acidity and a fine touch of smoky oak. Perfect with shellfish. "
"Slice a late summer Bosc pear over puff pastry and bake it-the tart will taste a lot like the flavors of this chardonnay. It's grown at Cuvaison's estate vineyard, on 30-year-old vines. Though tightly built, the wine broadens into the finish, refreshed by a bristle of acidity. Decant it for roast veal with chanterelles."
