2012 Les Voleurs Chardonnay

Sonoma Coast more

4/23/2015 - ATIVA wrote: 89 points

An oakier chardonnay than I prefer, but this works. The nose consists of pear, a touch of spice, and subtle oak. Palette has some tropical fruit up front, very mild pear, and toasted oak with a touch of butter. Medium finish. A mild, subtle, and slightly oaky chardonnay.

Very deep ruby. Crushed black fruit and cassis give way to some spice and cedar. This is still very young, but it's quite nice. Aerated 20 minutes in the bottle before drinking. I will be waiting a couple years for future bottles.

Young and very fruity with some spice undertones. Strawberry and plum with some allspice are predominant on the nose. Palette: strawberry, plum, a touch of clove and some light floral/cola notes. Rough tannins and very acidic. Should be really nice in a couple years.
