Natalie's Score: 88/100

Full-bodied with lots of oak, butter and green apple notes on the nose and palate. Good balance with nice acidity for food. Some hazelnut and toasted almond through the mid-palate. Good smoky finish.

Chardonnay food pairings: salmon or chicken with cream, mustard sauce, tarragon flavoured seafood.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I love the story behind this wine, and love the wine. Paul Brasset born in Nova Scotia, went to Napa Valley in 1980 to make wine and has made several award winning wines. This Chardonnay has rich flavors of pineapple, pear, tropical fruits and crème brulee. Can't wait to have it again.
Vegan-safe: does not use isinglass
Rich and multi-layered: aroma of pineapple, pear and tropical fruit, ripe peach, creme brulee. RIch and supple middle body, long clean and crisp finish, reminiscent of French Burgundy, particularly Montrachets
Numerous awards including Double Gold 2012 San Francisco Wine Competition.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
