We've worked our way through a case of this delicious Chardonnay over the last 7 years or so, and just drank our final bottle at age 9. It is still drinking magnificently, though it's certainly fully mature and I wouldn't be inclined to age it further. Excellent lees-laden nose of spiced ripe pears, apples, toast, and a strong mineral component like wet gravel. Medium bodied with delicious white fruit flavors, and a very slightly grassy/melon touch like a top-notch Sauvignon Blanc. One of the best Macons I've ever tasted. - HK 2009-10-31
