Mission Briefing

Codename:

Pedal to the Medal

It is with great glee that we present to you today’s 2010 Laurier Los Carneros Chardonnay. This wonderful, budget-friendly wine is a real gem.

Lightweight on entry and then fast across the palate, this approachable, flexible and easy-drinking wine is a terrific summertime refresher.

We enjoyed our sample bottles with food and without. We tried the wine fresh out of the chiller - and then slightly warmed. Icy cold, the wine is ultra refreshing. We even added a few berries. For a more elegant experience, allow the wine to warm up just a bit. As it warms, it softens, giving the wine a more round and more full overall mouthfeel.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pretty glinting gold with perfectly even coloration from heart to edge.

Smell:

This fresh wine leads with Granny Smith apple peel, lemon zest, wet river rock, oyster shell, subtle gardenia and a touch of subtle butterscotch.

Taste:

Lemon curd, lime flower, white rose petal, apricot, young pear, pomello, quince and white minerals.

Finish:

Very clean and long lingering with great mid-palate acidity.

Pairing:

Mussels in a lemongrass and saffron broth would be an amazing pairing. Add a single Thai chili for a little bit of heat. This Chardonnay would cut right through it.
