Vintages Wine Panel: Another winner from Le Clos Jordanne's Talon Ridge Vineyard. This Chardonnay features aromas of pear, nectarine, coconut, mineral, gentle woodsmoke and a touch of butterscotch. Dry, fairly robust with a blast of freshness followed immediately by an elegant, round fruitiness. The oak is very well handled, giving dimension to the wine. Medium-full bodied with a lingering finish. Enjoy it tonight. It should also age gracefully over the next 5+ years. My note: I can’t help but close my eyes every time after I taste this wine, and often there’s also a purr… which is hard to translate into a tasting note, but soldier on, I must. Buttery, toast almond with white pear and pear. Endless layers and finish. Are you sure we’re not in Meursault, Toto?

Chardonnay food pairings: pork tenderloin, roast chicken dinner.
