Starting to taste slightly flabby and lifeless; not very complex or delineated. The only flavor I could discern was Orange peel on the finish. The finish also showed an unusual - though not unpleasant - essence of mint, which is interesting for a Chardonnay. Medium weight on the palate, and an average-length finish. I would suspect this wine must have been much better and more distinctive in its younger days. Disappointing, considering this producer's reputation for making precise, vibrant wines.
