Tasted against the 2010 Joseph Drouhin “Laforet” Chardonnay.
Although I did record my tasting notes and the quality of this wine, the fact that this expensive-as-shit wine wasn’t entirely memorable sort of worries me a bit, and I’m wondering if it just didn’t have enough character in the end. I did note that this wine was well-balanced but could have had more complexity for the price.
Buy this if you’re filthy rich. Otherwise, for the same price, you can buy a cheaper bottle of Chardonnay, dinner, and still have leftover money to do so for the next day or so.
Edit (Feb. 21, 2014): OH MY GOD, did I really write about how this was boring?! How has no one punched me in the face?!
