#29 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
Our 2007 Estate Chardonnay is a true expression of Chalone's unique terroir capturing the very essence of our vineyard with toasty aromas of hazelnut, stone fruit, white pear and a unique minerality. On the palate, there is a bright acidity that mingles with flavors of fleshy pear, apricot, a bit of apple and is marked by Chalone's distinctive minerality which comes from our vineyard's unique limestone and decomposed granite soils.
Nice, smooth wine.
This wine was a very good buy. Shared it with my sister over New Year's. We both liked it very much.
