This is the best MacGregor I can remember tasting, which is saying something since this wine is excellent every year. The 2001 has the usual tasty ripe fruit, but struck me as having nearly perfect acid balance as well, making it a delicious and bracing white that goes beautifully with food -- never a sure thing with Chardonnays this flavorful. The oak here lends some nice spice but is also nicely integrated. Great Chardonnay at a great price. - HK 2003-11-09
