My favorite winery @ PEC that really knows Chardonnay and has developed own style. Love the lightness and elegance, with a bit of a smokiness, spice and lemon custard notes. Not a bargain, but have you tried to make a wine @ PEC? Great alternative for Cru Chablis (oaked) or simpler Meursault.

Celebrity equivalent: Sandy Rinaldo.

I tasted this Dec 30, 2014 - I don't know if it oxidized, but it was vinagary and lacked what one would expect from a Chard. Perhaps it was simply past its prime and this is a drink early wine?. It was a lovely winery and tasted good there of course.

NB - it is not fair to rate this wine, but the drop down menu does not allow one not to make a rating.
