The 2006 Chardonnay is exceptional! In the glass it has a light pale yellow color and has a bouquet of honey and vanilla. In the mouth you will realize it is well structured and has tones of pear, citrus and a slight touch of oak. Even though it was aged in oak barrels for 18 months it doesn’t have any overbearing oaky taste. It has a nice, long, smooth finish that just lingers nicely on the palate. This is a very elegant and enjoyable wine and I am glad my father-in-law was willing to share this bottle with us. It went perfectly with the nice spring evening.
