    Winemaker's Notes:

    I am very proud of our Chardonnay vines, which surprise and delight me each vintage.  The 2007 Arthur has all of the delicate, floral aromatics we see from our estate – the carnation and magnolia scents, with touches of lemon peel and other citrus fruits – but there is an extra texture and dimension to the 2007 that takes the wine to a new level.  Crisp on the palate, with a long finish, this wine is lovely now, and will develop nicely for at least the next 3-5 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Always a joy to drink, the latest vintage of DDO's Arthur combines richness and elegance in a seamless and fascinating whole. Cucumber and melon, apple and pear fruit is the base, which expands into wet stone and mineral, then butter cookie. It’s a one-wine seminar in how to make great Chardonnay, expressing the acid-driven elegance of Burgundy with some of the lushness of New World grapes. Tasted even better on the second day.

    Light gold. Complex bouquet of smoky citrus and orchard fruit aromas, along with honeysuckle and a gentle lees note. Finely etched pear and Meyer lemon flavors are braced by tangy mineral and spice qualities. The finish displays refreshingly bitter citrus zest and repeating mineral notes, and clings with impressive tenacity.

    This is hands down my favorite bottle of Chardonnay! I cringed at the $30 price but after sharing it at a dinner party, I was sold! I've since recommended it to several friends who also swear by it! Give it a try...you won't be disaapointed. I keep at least 2 bottles in my stash as back up!

    This is one of the best Chardonnay's I've tried from the new world in a long time. Minerally, crisp, complex, with good depth and concentration. Even if you're mostly a fan of white burgundy, try a bottle.
