Today is World Chardonnay Day. Horray!
If you are on Twitter, tweet your recommendations and/or tasting notes with the hashtag #chardonnay. A friend of mine was in Napa Vally/Sonoma for a bachelorette party last year and brought back a case of chardonnay from Chateau St. Jean. It’s not cheap but it is affordable. Here is what their website has to say about it:
Fresh aromas of yellow stone fruit, lemon zest and hints of honeysuckle and vanilla introduce the nose of this single vineyard Chardonnay. A medium-bodied entry fills the mouth with notes of melon, clove and wet stone minerality and ends with a lasting lemon oil finish. The wine has a creamy texture with bright acidity, making this an excellent food wine.
Go ahead, treat yourself. You deserve it.
