Wine Review: I would suggest all the Chardonnay lovers in the world run to their nearest wine shop and buy up this wonderful Chardonnay. This was one of my Top Picks from this years Boston Wine Expo. This wine has a very pleasant bouquet with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is smooth, creamy, and delightful. The finish was slightly dry and nicely extended. This wine had it all as far as I was concerned and for $30 it is a steal. Run don’t walk and enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Floral aromas of tropical fruit, fresh pear, and Meyer lemon; highlighted with honeysuckle, vanilla, and spice. The mouth is rich and creamy filled with rich flavors of honey, green apple, fig, and nutmeg. Firm acidity provides a bright finish of citrus, mineral, and toasted oak.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Truchard 2005 Chardonnay Estate.
