2011 Copain Chardonnay Laureles Grade Monterey

A lovely bottle of wine. The nose has pleasantly astringent notes of pear and lemon. The palate fulfills the promise of the aromas. Minerals, pear, citrus, notes of pepper. Brilliant acidity highlights the fruit. Great balance. Finishes long and spicy with minerals and bracing acidity. Just lovely. It's Chablis by way of California. 12.8% ABV. "A"
