Typical aromas, with fruit and floral notes. A very perfumed, silky and elegant wine. To be drunk preferably in its youth for its freshness. Will deliciously accompany freshwater fish, shellfish of all kinds, pâtés and terrines.
"A similar if more complex nose also offers up notes of straw, melon and citrus where the latter continues onto the rich, generous and rather fleshy medium-bodied flavors that possess good dry extract levels and fine finishing intensity. This will be approachable young." Burghound (88)

The 2009 Chardonnay Horse Heaven Hills (a mere 36,000 cases) was 75% barrel-fermented with 75% of the wine going through malolactic fermentation. It was aged sur lie in barrel for 9 months with batonnage. Toasty tropical aromas lead to a spicy, savory, well-balanced, lengthy Chardonnay that is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 2-3 years. Wine Advocate 89 Points

This vineyard is 7 acres with 20 year old vines. The wine is light yellow in color with a faint golden hue. It has a gorgeous perfume with floral and citrus nuances and is finesseful and balanced with floral and citrus notes and a lovely crisp finish.
Incredible purity and class on the nose—discreet, complex, a hint of vanilla and white flower blossoms. The palate is dry and round without a hint of sucrosity.
This wine expresses intense and focused aromatics while concentrated, impeccably balanced rich, long flavors take over in the mouth. The wines from Pouilly Fuissé are often thought to rival and surpass many of the top level wines found in the Côte de Beaune and at a fraction of the price.
"The 2009 Chardonnay Clare Hyde Vineyard is a beautiful, focused wine. It possesses the textural richness that is typical of this site, but with quite a bit of minerality and freshness as well. Clean saline notes frame the nicely delineated finish. This parcel was planted with Wente clones 17 years ago. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021." Wine Advocate (92 Points)
Chardonnay is made entirely from grapes grown in Groth's Oakville and Hillview Vineyards. The majority of tonnage comes from the Hillview parcel, located in the Oak Knoll District, which was planted in 1996. The fruit from this cooler vineyard site provides the tropical fruit, citrus and mineral notes that complement food nicely. Grapes from the warmer Oakville vineyards give our Chardonnay its distinctive green apple character.Fresh and lively, with vivid, complex citrus, green apple, white peach and honeydew melon, this full-bodied white ends with a long, detailed finish. Drink now through 2016. Wine Spectator 89 Points
White | Chardonnay | France | 750ml
A blend of two-thirds barrel fermented and barrel aged with some aged in stainless steel tanks with wooden staves and the rest totally in stainless steel, all of which was put through malolactic fermentation. The idea of blending steel fermented juice with barrel fermented wines seems to have produced a freshness and vibrancy. Bright with notes of orange blossoms, spring flowers, honeysuckle and white peaches, this floral-styled, medium to full-bodied effort will please those looking for Chardonnays with less than 14% alcohol (this offering has 13.8%).
Produced from 100% old Wente clones, the light gold-colored 2009 Chardonnay Ma Princesse offers beautiful aromas of tangerines, mangos, sweet white currants and quince, a creamy, full-bodied, voluptuous texture and gorgeous acidity. This exceptional group of wines is limited in quantity (from a low of 125 cases to a high of 400+ cases for several of the Chardonnays) cuvees. This is the visionary project of Luc Morlet, a Frenchman who worked for Peter Michael and still consults there with his brother, Nicolas.Wine Advocate 94-97 Points
