Initially felt abit too oaky with with some air, calmed down quite a bit. Meally, almost like a Mersault in style, but always with a bit more acidity. Nicely done for $9.99 but still a hit too much oak for my taste.

Did the label say this is Chardonnay? If not, it is likely mostly Sauvignon Blanc (and wood of course [img]http://www.wines.com/ubb2/wink.gif[/img]

You know...I thought that it was an SB on tasting........I was told it was a Chardonnay.........it tasted like no Chard that I knew of...Thanks......I thought I was going crazy (or may already be there)....
If I was not told as such, I would have said SB. Then again, the other night I was out for dinner with a client at a nice spot in Boston when the waiter told me that the Mersault was made with fine Mersault grapes from France. I told him it was Chard and he kindly corrected me and told me that they do not grow anything cheap like that over there......... I said okay... and smiled.
I will remove and post elsewhere!

The next time you go to that restaurant see if they have any wines made from the Burgundy grape. I heard a rumor that some idiots in Burgundy are trying to make red wine from Pinot Noir instead...
