Cesuret Chardonnay 2004

Purchased from the Cesuret tasting room in Italy

Aaron: I was afraid this would have gone bad … but was pleasantly surprised.  The smell was intriguing with mango and basil competing for prominence.  The flavor was watered down at first but then some graham cracker and nice mellow fruits made for an enjoyable bottle. 90 points

Teri: Drinking a Chardonnay 10 years in the bottle was unusual for us, but this one was a surprise. A light peach/oak smell with a full mouth flavor but light on the finish. While the lemon flavor lingers after the swallow, there is balanced fruit in the taste (peach, lemon, and apricot) with some butter flavor. 89 points
