Drank 7/23/20.

Simple nose of lemon and a touch of pear. Flavors are well balanced, with lemon curd and some peach notes. Clean, citrus driven finish. A middle of the road style.

2/22/7/4/3 +50 = 88

Nice, flavorful Chardonnay. Not buttery and somewhat citrusy.

I liked it better first day than second, which is a little unusual. Crisp, a bit fruitier than I'd normally gravitate toward, some butter but not as much as other chards I prefer lately. Good price but not something I'd seek out.

Buttery, tangy but smooth, pear flavour but not overly sweet. Great legs!

This is a fruity and bright chard with vanilla notes. Like if a buttery Chard and dry Riesling had a love child

Belle couleur or, fait penser au vin jaune plus léger. Finale acide. Très bon.

Solid oaky offering that I’d happily return to. I don’t follow the unoaked trend happening at the moment.

8/2020. I do not have much experience with Chardonnay. That said, this was easy to drink paired with baked chicken.

Slight sweet, buttery, not too oaky.
