Not a Chard connoisseur, but this mega-butter perfect-oak white with rich long-lasting flavor was outstanding. Tasted against a Carmenet and Cooper Garrod, it blew them both off the face of the planet. I (PVM) personally have a low tolerance for the citrus'y Chards and this rich vanilla-butter-fruit mouthfiller is guaranteed to please anyone. (Colleague Linden tasted the 2000 and liked it just as much.) - pvm 2003-06-08
