A light style Chard, aged using 50% oak barrels, 50% stainless steel. Shows citrus, tropical fruit, buttered toast and soft caramel notes. Ripe fruit flavours open up on palate and finish. Tasted June 2017 at #CSM50, Social Restaurant

A gorgeous label to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this storied winery. This wine features tropical fruit, stone fruit, golden delicious apple, quince and subtle oak spice. One for the patio. 90 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautifully oaked, luscious ripe tropical fruit, refreshing big acidity, citrus zest, big red apple. Balanced, medium plus all around. Pairs well with roast chicken / turkey, pesto pizza with roasted veggies, and is standing very well on its own. Tasted 2016 vintage in Nov 2017. 90 points. BespokeTastings
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful citrus blossom and tropical fruit aromas. The palate shows juicy crisp red apple, orange zest, and fresh apricots. A well-balanced medium-bodied fruity and buttery Chardonnay. Pairs with rotisserie chicken. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
100% Chardonnay from Château St- Michelle. Medium lemon-green colour. Aromas of tropical fruit, peaches, apricots, banana cream pie and honeysuckle. Flavours consist of stone fruit, pears, apples, poached pears, nutmeg spices and a hint of toasted nuts. Medium plus acidity with a medium body and a medium minus finish. Creamy, toasty and delightfully decadent. Enjoy with garlic buttered shrimp or escargot apps. 90 points
|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A beautifully crafted Chardonnay. Not overdone, not a lightweight - perfectly placed in the middle. Quite full, quite buttery textured with some oak coming across with butterscotch flavours.
|Peter Neilson rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Really nice apples, peaches, tangerine and fresh-mown hay scent. Fresh acidity, with apples and citrus. Unfortunately, for me at least, an unpleasant bitter, even “stemmy” vegetal finish, that, if more subtle, would add complexity, but heavy enough here, for me, to detract from my OA impression. 88 for me, marked down from what would have been a solid 90. Considering the modest price, a nice chicken BBQ wine.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Some toasty oak on the nose leads into spiced apple and soft citrus notes on the palate. Fermented 50/50 in oak barrels and stainless steel. An easy drinking chardonnay that will pair with a variety of food dishes from chicken to fish.
|From the Columbia Valley in Washington, Chateau Ste. Michelle's Chardonnay (2016) is full-bodied, with butterscotch and ripe red apple flavours on the palate. Pair with roast turkey. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews|
