Chamard Chardonnay 2004

Member Review by MTB:

This is a more classic Chardonnay than the Stone Cold White. The color, while still on the pale side, is a deeper yellow, and the nose is stronger, with nice floral notes. The Chardonnay is aged in a combination of French oak (40%) and stainless steel (60%), and the oak provides a smooth, yet light, buttery finish. In the mouth, the wine is a bit more fuller-bodied than the Stone Cold White, and there are notes of citrus and honey. Overall, this is a lovely Chardonnay with just the right balance of fruit and acid; it will pair well with a wide variety of foods.

I'm not a Chardonnay guy at all. If I'm having white, it's almost always Pinot Grigio. I generally find Chardonnays to be too oakey, too sweet, and just not my thing. That said, the Chamard Chardonnay, a Connecticut white wine that blends grapes from Chamard's Vineyard in Clinton, CT with grapes from Long Island, is very good. Here is a Chardonnay that is not too sweet, not at all Oakey, and is smooth and enjoyable. While many Connecticut wines end up running close to $20.00, Chamard's Chardonnay is well worth the $12.99 (or even less in some places!) that is charged.
