Jim Clendenen sees Burgundy as the benchmark for Chardonnay. What he makes is a real rebuttal to what you might expect from California. It's aged in French oak, more discreet and delicious. As a result, his Au Bon Climat winery has won universal praise since 1982. This has flavours of lemon, lime, vanilla and oak spice. Serve lightly chilled with shellfish.

From my white wine rescue package (only reds left and it&#39;s too hot for them), I was after certain whites but was recommended this US Chardonnay by the store staff in Majestics.<br /><br />Great recommendation. Golden colour in the glass. Intensity on the nose is medium(+) with notes of apricot, Apple, lemon, butter and oak. On the palate, citrus, vanilla, peach and a very nice buttery medium finish. Acidity is low. Was much nicer as the glass warmed up(which right now, doesn&#39;t take that long).

If only their government was up to the standard of this wine! Genuinely a reference style for premium Cali Chardonnay in my opinion

Really classy, a great Chardonnay, in the Burgundy style. Fresh, youthful, with complex but gentle oak flavours, with generous attractive fruit, giving a lengthy finish. Excellent value for money.
