2011 St. Supéry Chardonnay Oak Free

Community Tasting Note


86 Points

Saturday, September 15, 2012 - I've never tasted a wine like this. Nothing is typical for a California Chardonnay. There is a big hit of those vegetable, green garden flavors and aromas we find in wines from Gascony in France. There is even a greenish tint to the color. The nose is pungent to say the least with vegetaive aromas we rarely associate with wine. The fruit, and vegetables on the palate are sharp, crisp, and intense, but not necessarily likeable. The lemon/lime factor is really strong. There is mango, nectarine, green apple skin, not quite ripe melon, and asparagus. There is a big mouth full of relatively strange flavors. Crisp acidity. I doi not enjoy tasting this one, but can see how some would appreciate it.
