This toasty, buttery Chardonnay is warming me up nicely on a -30 winters night on the prairie. Much debate and lots to talk about regarding Closson's wines and wine making style. Oxidative-yes. A bit of VA-yes. But, I'm licking my glass, wishing it was a magnum instead. Baked apple, tinned mandarin oranges that are creamed then bruleed, creamed corn, toasted almonds and a huge minerally lemon finish. At this point, for experienced Chard lovers only. Drink by 2015.
