($55) Aromas of lemon custard, soft citrus fruits, nuts and light sulfides. Round and rich, with a suave texture but good rather than outstanding concentration. Soil-driven flavors.

The elegant, Coche-Dury-styled 2000 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch reveals notions of orange marmalade, liquid minerals, lemon rind, and citrus. Leesy/hazelnut qualities are also present in this medium-bodied, rich, delineated, French-styled Chardonnay. It will drink well for 5-6 years.

Shows off fresh bread dough and toasted grains, with a tight core of pear and citrus-scented fruit, and light cedary oak. Gains complexity on the finish, with hints of anise and citrus, and the acidty is vibrant and juicy. 2,766 cases made.
