Green-tinged yellow. Pungent aromas of lime, candied ginger, white flowers and quinine. Musky, sexy and linear on the palate, offering fresh pineapple, spice and vanilla flavors and a touch of chalky minerality. Deep, chewy, focused Chardonnay with excellent finishing cut and persistent spiciness. (ST)
The 2010 Chardonnay La Carriere (1,900 cases produced) was made from a combination of Dijon and Hyde clones. Bursting with honeysuckle, lemon oil, white peach and wet stone characteristics, this full-bodied, rich white possesses great acidity as well as a more backward, austere character than the other two vintages. Something I have noticed with a number of the 2010 Chardonnays is that they have a structural component that should make them very long-lived. This beauty reveals plenty of concentration, so enjoy it over the next decade. (RP)
Peter Michael's 2010 Chardonnay La Carriere is an intense, focused wine. Lemon oil, butter, vanillin, nectarine and spices all flesh out in the glass. Once again, the Carriere is distinguished by is underlying stoniness and minerality. Stylistically, the 2010 is creamy, textured and very nicely balanced throughout. (AG)
A creamy Chardonnay, displaying intense, complex flavors of rich hazelnut, fig, melon and smoky oak, this is full-blown and—as of now—rustic and chewy. Give this some time, the texture should soften. Best from 2013 through 2020. (JL)
