- Peay Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2010 Product #26588 (In Stock)
Always one of our favorite Sonoma Coast Chardonnays, the 2010 is probably the best vintage we’ve carried yet.
"Pale yellow-gold. Intensely perfumed bouquet of melon, pear skin, white flowers and iodine, with a chalky overtone. Deeply pitched, palate-staining orchard fruit and lemon curd flavors are lifted by zesty acidity and pick up a smoky quality with air. Rich but light on its feet, finishing with outstanding thrust and lingering florality."International Wine Cellar 93 points
"Vintage 2010 wasn’t kind to Peay, as yields were down a full 50%. Then again, that is not unusual for extreme coastal sites that require heroic viticulture and relentless commitment to quality, exactly the values the Peay family embodies. The 2010 Chardonnay Estate is stunning. Dried pears, lemon, white flowers and crushed rocks are woven together in a Chardonnay that impresses for its exceptional balance and pure harmony. Subtle, refined and impeccably polished, the 2010 is all about harmony. This is one of the richer Chardonnays readers will come across from the true Sonoma Coast, and it is fabulous. The 40% new oak barrels are totally integrated. It will be fascinating to see how the 2010 ages. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020."Wine Advocate 93 points
