Blind Chardonnay Tasting (Chez Hughes - Chicago IL): Blind tasting. Alcohol hits you over the head with a mallet on the nose, palate and finish. Big and interesting fruit but I frankly wanted to get an ice cube to drop in the glass to (a) dilute the alcohol and (b) get it colder to also hide the heat. Others liked this wine, putting it in the top half of the very strong lineup, but I ranked it as the worst non-flawed wine, and actually considered rating the prematurely oxidized 1996 Corton Charlemagne ahead of this.
