2010 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
California: Sonoma Coast
Today’s L’Attitude 39 2010 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay was a favorite at our recent tasting panel. Light, refreshing, and incredibly approachable, this Chardonnay is the perfect companion to a warm summer day.
Crafted in the Burgundian style, this wine features a wonderful blend of fresh California fruit paired with a more refined, subtle finish that is entirely French in manner. This combination leads to one seriously delicious wine, and one that is at once familiar and just a bit unique as well.
Coming in at an incredibly budget friendly price under $19, this 91 Point Chardonnay is not to be missed. For anyone looking for an approachable, yet interesting, California Chardonnay, today’s wine is for you!
A beautiful, sunny golden hue through and through, with a subtle touch of viscosity.
Refined and elegant on the nose, with aromas of Meyer lemon, white peach, and slight green apple complemented by a subtle oaky spice. Also present are hints of white flower petal and vanilla bean.
Very Burgundian on the palate, with a more subtle and restrained flavor profile. Well balanced flavors of Meyer lemon, lime flower, Granny Smith apple, slight brioche, sweet vanilla, and lemon curd form a delicious and delicate interplay.
With a lovely richness on entry, this is an easy and approachable Chardonnay, perfect for sipping. The finish is highlighted by hints of citrus, white flower, and sweet vanilla.
This easy-drinker would be perfectly paired with crispy prosciutto-wrapped asparagus.
What the Winery Says
Magnificent citrus aromas, crisp orchard flavors and bright acidity blend to create a beautiful, well balanced wine.
91 Point Review - Wilfred Wong A chard, with purity, the ‘10 L’Attitude shows fine apple aromas, with a hit of dried citrus; stays fruit, yet crisp and refined on the palate.
