Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay 2009 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 89/100So classically made at such a terrific price! Diehard Chardonnay lovers will embrace this wine, but so too will other white wine drinkers because it’s not heavy in oak or alcohol. Lovely green apple and melon aromas with a seductive weave of vanilla smoke.
Chardonnay food pairings: seafood, shellfish, poultry dishes accented by herbs.

Grapefruit, lemon, herbal, mineral/stone aromas. Buttered popcorn, green apple flavours. Oak evident, but definitely in the background. Medium-bodied. Quality Chard that's well-made. I will be having this with pan-fried salmon dusted with cajun.

I loved this Chardonnay from the Washington State area. Smooth, with great acidity and flavors of nutmeg, pear and other spices. A lovely soft finish. Very food friendly
|Jay Forrest rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Good, solid Chard. A bit oakey.
|Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
A very approachable Chardonnay with notes of lemon and biscuit on the nose and a wonderful hint of cream on the palate with just a tiny bit of spice on the finish. Great for an everyday Chardonnay!
|Toasted pine nuts, marshmallow, banana, lemon, grapefruit peel, pear, vanilla and a dab of butter help describe the aromas. Pineapple, light banana and Golden Delicious apple flavors swirl with lovely brightness, keyed by citrusy acidity. Oak notes are tucked off to the side, making this suitable to serve with seafood.
