Top Chardonnay Wine

My wine reviews include Chardonnay wines with high scores for their superb quality and taste, and their prices often reflect this as they tend to be more expensive. These Chardonnay wines achieve a score of 90 points or higher out of 100 and are often the wines that have the greatest aging ability and are therefore great Chardonnay wines for your cellar. They are also often the top ranked wines on many lists, especially in fine restaurants, with ratings that reflect their craftsmanship. You'll also find my reviews of Chardonnay wines that are less expensive, but still represent great value. This is just a small set of my wine reviews: when you join my wine community, you can access all of my reviews.

Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay 2008
Monterey, California, United States
Vintages Wine Panel: Lots of apple, tropical fruit, pear, coconut and vanilla aromas on display here. Dry, fruity, round and ripe. Crowd-pleasing Cali Chard with a core of ripe fruit and bright acidity for refreshment. Smooth-textured. My note: Superb! Buttery, along-rich chardonnay with layers of full-bodied goodness. Generous but not heavy. Perfect for lobster in butter and corn on the cob. My mouth is watering. Chardonnay food pairings: pan-seared scallops, blackened chicken, lobster, corn-on-the-cob. Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2011‐2015  Price: $24.95 Score: 90/100
