Big, youthful Chardonnay that's starting to show its quality but will continue to develop for several more years. Pure, balanced, precise feel to all its components. Complex, long aromas and flavors highlighted by peach, pear, and citrus fruits touched with vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, and mineral water. Very clean and refreshing in the mouth, not oily or heavy in any way. I'm going to try to save my last bottle of this great wine for about 2014, but don't know if I can hold out that long. - HK 2011-12-24
