Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Jeb Dunnuck - From a 4 acre, south-facing plot and vines planted 15 years ago, the 2011 Chardonnay Le Souvenir Sierra Madre Vineyard (aged in 65-70% new French oak) delivers slightly more richness and texture, with gorgeously pure aromas and flavors of baked apple tart, toasted hazelnut, brioche and crisp minerality. Thrilling on the palate, with a medium to full-bodied profile, awesome detail and delineation, and a seamless finish, it should be given another year or so and will knock your socks off through 2021.
 

Additional Information

Varietal :
Chardonnay
Probably the world's most famous grape, and also one of the most versatile, Chardonnay produces excellent white wines in a range of styles. When aged in oak, Chardonnay exhibits buttery, vanilla and sometimes nutty flavors. Unoaked examples are crisp and fruity, with green apple or tropical flavors. Chardonnay is the grape used to make White Burgundy, Sancerre and Chablis, and may also be used to produce Champagne. View all our additional Chardonnay items
Region :
California
Since the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
