Price at time of purchase: $13.00 (Current release: Costco and elsewhere.)

Delicious, full-bodied Chardonnay. Great nose, like inserting one's head into a jar of fresh roasted cashews. Creamy texture with great acid/fruit balance. Classic Chardonnay fruit flavors and a rich finish like dried apricots. Great price for such a good wine. Almost certainly not long-lived, but who cares? The Chardonnays, Cabs, and Merlots from Ch. Souverain are all outstanding bargains. - HK 2000-10-31
