    December 19, 2015 - At 36k feet courtesy of BA.
    New word Chardonnay, citrus, light vanilla, peaches. Well round and lacked acidity, was a bit flat and almost blunt at times. Will not rate as this was at altitude but did not feel more than an 85

    December 3, 2015 - Fairly dry. Not good at all if chilled. Better when it warmed up, but wouldn't buy again. Had a petroleum flavor, and cardboard nose. Dumped half of it out.

    July 28, 2015 - Ce chardonnay de la région de Santa Maria Valley, près de Santa Barbara en Californie est un exemple intelligent de l’utilisation bien dosée du fût de chêne. Le vin en été élevé en fût français pendant un peu plus de 6 mois avec environ 15% de fûts neufs. Nommé d'après la fille aînée de la propriétaire Barbara Banke, ce vin est un mélange de différentes parcelles de Chardonnay.

    Il en résulte un produit aromatique avec ses parfums de mangue, de fleurs blanches, d’agrumes, d’épices et de notes de vanille. La bouche est délicieuse avec des saveurs envoutantes de pomme verte, de poire et de chêne épicé. Belle réussite pour un vin propre et nette qui s’étire sur une longue finale crémeuse.

    June 22, 2015 - Singapore Airlines - Business & Lounges; 6/22/2015-6/26/2015 (Sydney, Singapore, Frankfurt): Somewhat developing, sweetly liqueured nose; pineapple, tropical fruits. The medium-bodied palate is bolstered by sweet oak, malo influences and sweet tropical fruits. It’s not fair to call it off-dry, but it has a real sweetness which feels like more than just the oak. Low acid, and it has the short finish you’d expect. Fairly dull stuff.
