Au Bon Climat Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County, 2010

Grgich Hills step aside. Gorgeous California Chard. Elevated comfort food, er wine. Smooth, elegant, buttery, butterscotch, balanced, nuanced, a long soft cakey finish, lightly floral. It was sad we only had one bottle so we tasted a farewell to summer with a find summer wine. Thank you ABC.  A most satisfying white.  And what a superstar compared to the 2011.

Scintillatingly good

Price: $25 from the vineyard; even with the Canadian peso it was worth it.

 

Market Liquidity: What a difference a day vintage makes.
