2007 A Donkey and Goat Winery Chardonnay Brosseau Vineyard Chalone
($45) Bright, slightly cloudy gold. Strikingly complex aromas of poached pear, Meyer lemon, iodine, mint and herbs, with hints of grapefruit rind and smoky minerals. Deeply concentrated, sappy and stony citrus and orchard fruit flavors stain the palate and are complemented by notes of anise, herbs and smoky lees. Really wild stuff, with excellent balance, precision and nervy minerality. The extremely long, dusty finish repeats the grapefruit, iodine and anise notes and clings with excellent grip and clarity. This is one of the more distinctive New World chardonnays I've tasted in a long time. 93pts
