This is a very fine chardonnay - medium weight, smooth and rich yet still a bit light on its feet. Generous, ripe...

Shows its finesse from the start. Though today I sense a slightly candied nose it's wrapped in a warm and fuzzy coat,...

Maybe I just do not appreciate chardonnay as much as others. I did not notice much with the bouquet. As for the taste, well, it is subtle. It is smooth and well integrated, but there was none of the magic I expected from all these reviews. It is very nice, but not amazing.
