La Crema-Chardonnay-Sonoma Coast-California-2007-$15.99-A crisp nose of fresh fruit, golden color.  A smooth blend or orange, lemon oil and honeysuckle, with just the right amount of oak.  This was one of my favorite Chards a few years back, glad I tried it again, a nice white wine.        RP-90     CR-4.5    Good with seafood, chicken, pasta and salads.

Byron Vineyards And Winery-Santa Maria Valley-Chardonnay-California-2006-$19.99-A nice crisp nose of citrus, good golden color.  A smooth creamy, little spice, honey favored wine.  A very good Chard, second year in a row I have enjoyed this wine.      WS-88        CR-4-4.5        Good with chicken, pasta, salads. 

Montes S.A.-Montes Alpha-Special Cuvee-Chardonnay-D.O. Casablanca Valley-Chile-2006-$15.99-A bright citrus nose of spicy fruit, beautiful golden color.  Apple, pear, fig, vanilla and a toasty oak finish, good acidity.  I have found that Chile makes a great Chard, that delivers at this price level a wine that should cost twice as much.        RP-90      WS-90     CR-4.5     Good with salads, seafood, pasta.

Casa Lapostolle S.A.-Cuvee Alexandre-Atalayas Vineyard-Chardonnay-Casablanca Valley- Chile-2006-$23.99-Elegant nose of vanilla and citrus, nice gold color.  Very smooth, honey, butterscotch, fig, pear, toasty oak, creamy.  A very enjoyable Chard, well worth the price.  Casa Lapostolle is owned by the Marnier Family who make the popular French Liquor, Grand Marnier.       WS-90     RP-89     CR-4.5      Great with salads, seafood, pasta.
