Though pleasant and drinkable, this was by far the most disappointing bottle of Rochioli single-vineyard Chardonny I've had - to the point that I wonder if this bottle was off. Oily textured and with the usual Rochioli mineral edge, but virtually devoid of fruit and almost dull in flavor. Texturally the wine was OK, and there was some distant pear fruit, but overall there was just not much energy or interest here - especially at $60 a bottle. - HK 2011-09-15
