Had a unique tasting opportunity on 12/22/12 with my son and wife to drink this 07 "Lorenzo" Chard along with an 07 Chasseur "Blank" Pinot with Caprese salad and pork chops, and it was amazing-! We loved the style of this Chasseur and found it very similiar to another one of our favorite Chards---Aubert. Like Aubert, this Chard had a deep golden hew appearance, the nose was buttery, but, still had hints of apple and pear, yet there was enough acidity to balance out the intensity to allow the wine to show off its detailed character. A nice lingering citrus zest at the end with a slight hint of smoke and spices made this Chard a very nice surprise. I am a single vineyard Chasseur fan-!!
Popped and poured during Thanksgiving. Took no formal tasting note, however, the wine was medium gold in color, quite viscous, medium intensity, developing aromas of tropical fruits. On the palate, dry, medium plus in body and alcohol, medium acidity, creamy and oaky with flavors of Kiwi, mango and orange zest. Medium plus finish with a bit of smoke and some spicy minerality. A very good quality wine that is drinking well now, and should continue to drink nicely for the next five years… But probably won't further improve over that time.
