Joel Gott Monterey Chardonnay, 2010

Smooth and velvety unoaked chard.  Marginally sweet.  Firm on the palate but perhaps too short on the finish, no lingering fruit.  Steely, yes, but not too much citrus.

Don’t think I’ve ever had a “bad” bottle of Gott but, at the same time, don’t have any strong memories of Gott.  In the US, where they sell for a song, the Gott wines tend to be uber-value.  In Canada, there’s a little more competition in the $23-26 price range and they are good, worthwhile, but not brilliant.

As we let it sit, and it warmed, and with some air, it tended to reveal more traditional chardonnay vanilla and pear, but still nothing exceptional.

Price: $22.99 at Everything Wine

Market Liquidity: Satisfactory, in a good way
