2008 Mer Soleil Chardonnay, Barrel Fermented, Santa Lucia Highlands, CA, $22 – Rating 90

Though unoaked Chardonnay seems to be in vogue… Mer Soleil Chardonnay is a beautiful balance between fruit and soft French oak creating a delicious blend of flavors, including red apple, pineapple, tropical citrus, butterscotch, toasty vanilla and a subtle touch of coconut. This rich wine provides a satisfying and full mouth-feel with just enough acidity to create a harmonious balance.
