A solid Chardonnay, though it seemed more tart and not as rich or buttery or luxurious as is usual from this excellent (and fairly priced) producer. Vanilla, oak, and minerals are evident in the nose, while in the mouth the acid level seems to have somewhat the upper hand over the vanilla-tinged citrus fruit. - HK 2002-11-01
