Probably my favorite C. Donatiello Chardonnay to date, the '08 Maddie's Vineyard is an exceptionally flavorful and balanced white. While firm in the Burgundian style, it's ripe and ringing with freshness, showing citrus, pear, and banana fruit, a lovely floral edge, and plenty of cinammon/nutmeg spice. Nice feel of purity and harmony from start to finish. - HK 2010-11-04
