REVIEW: 2010 Chardonnay, St. David's Bench Vineyard

Thursday, November 28
Michael Pinkus 

So far I have liked every 2010 Chardonnay that has come out the doors of the Chateau – from the cheap-o Barrel Fermented ($13.95) to this deliciously complex single vineyard offering – you pay a little more, but what’s $6 between friends and a good Chardonnay.  There’s a vanilla-butter sensation complete with caramelized peach and baked apple … nice acidity takes up residence on the back palate with hints of clove and burnt vanilla (don’t knock burnt vanilla till you’ve tried it) – this one is delicious all on its own. 

Rating: 4/5 stars

Price: $19.95

You can purchase this wine in three LCBO Vintages locations; at our Château des Charmes boutiques in Toronto and Ottawa, at the winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake and on-line
