In 2000, perfect ripening weather and lack of intense heat spells allowed us to achieve great homogeneity of ripeness in our Chardonnay.
Aromas of green apples and stone fruit are accented and lifted by citrus and tangerine notes. The 2000 vintage has a firm acid grip and, of course, gobs of wet stone minerality from Chalone's unique limestone soil.
Aged on the lees for tem months in 100% French oak, the wine was never racked until bottling. This extended sur lie aging, coupled with malolactic fermentation, created complex layers of Broiche - the aroma isn't just yeastiness, but rich, baked bread smells of butter and eggs. Our 2000 Chardonnay is viscous and rich on the finish.
Very similar to our outstanding 1999 vintage, this wine has a perfect balance between fruitiness, barrel aging, and minerality. I think of it as the Chardonnay for a red wine drinker. It's powerful, complex, and goes well with just about everything: chicken, pasta, fish, pork, or take out Chinese food. Yes!
