I'm here again - drinking lunch...:-) Snow and cold outside, I need something big to get warm again. First out, while waiting for the food, a glass of
2008 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay, Chateau Boswell
A new producer for me, the nose is big, warm, sweet and yummy with notes of tropical fruit, melted butter, pan fried nuts and some lovely smoky notes. Big, yes, over the top, no, no. This is very fresh in its opulent way.
The taste is tight, big, opulent and fresh, with gorgeous sweet fruit, fine acidity and a great length, which ends bone dry. Notes of lemon cream, summer flowers, dried apricots and cold butter. Very, very good.
