Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Chardonnay 2018 is made to please the amateur of rich California Chardonnay. The wine delivers tropical aromas of pineapple, mango, yellow apple, lime peel, citrus blossom, butter and vanilla. Full body, with a round and delicious finish, the wine evolves into supple acidity and warm flavors of honeydew melon, yellow apple, apricot, lime, saline, toast, toffee and vanilla. Delicious wine. Enjoy!
From Monterey County, California, Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Gold Label Chardonnay 2017 is so fragrant with white and orange blossom florals, dry, full-bodied with lush tropical fruit and caramel apple flavours on the palate with vibrant acidity for barbeque chicken. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
