2012 Forgeron Chardonnay, Columbia Valley

19/20 points

“This is a delicious Chardonnay. Brilliant gold-colored, it emits enticing aromas of Gala apple, Bosch pear, white peach, & mandarin orange peel, with scents of apple & orange blossoms, & spiced vanilla. The white fruit compote flavors dance on the palate along with grape skin extracts, peach pit & bracing minerality, followed on the back by touches of crème fraiche, orange peel & pain grillé. A final burst of citrus & kiwi fruit juices, accompanied by a deft dose of French Burgundian oak (32% new) & light spices (cardamom, clove) complete this lovely wine. 19/20 points.”
