    Winemaker's Notes:

    A rich, buttery, barrel fermented Chardonnay with a sunny California profile. This wine has a citrus driven nose with hints of pineapple, banana and coconut cream pie. Soft and round entry. The oak is apparent, but not defining. The mid-palate goes on to reveal other layers of flavors of vanilla, lemon meringue pie and again coconut. The finish is rich with viscosity that coats the mouth for minutes after your last sip. Enjoy slightly chilled.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Oak brings strong buttered toast and vanilla flavors to this Chardonnay. But it's also a powerhouse from the vineyard, with massive orange, pineapple and apricot flavors. May even have some botrytis, to judge from the honeyed sweetness. Yet for all the opulence, the finish is dry.

    Excellent for Red Wine drinkers. Complex, but not too fruity.

    I usually stick to the creamy/butery Chardonnay - this one had a bit more citrus but taste great!

    GREAT stuff! This is an excellent Chardonnay. I was hesitant about the whole barrel fermented part - yes, I'm a novice - but this is a wonderful wine. If you like Chardonnay you will LOVE the Mer Soeil!!

    This is a nice buttery chardonnay just like I like it. The creaminess is broken up by the citrus flavors that hit you at the end, hints of lemon peel. I really like it.
