Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from Chamisal opens with an oak and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with pleasant plus acidity and a nice round mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a tasty oak influenced Anjou pear with notes of almond. I also detected a hint of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and lingers for quite a while. This Chard is food friendly and would pair well with Coquilles St. Jacques. Enjoy - Ken
