A friend brought over a bottle of Chalone Vineyard Pinot Blanc for our pasta dinner the other night. I do have to say I was very pleased with this wine. I prefer a more dry white wine and this hit all the notes. Not too fruity. My old daily standby and reasonable bottle of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay all of a sudden became very fruity after drinking the Chalone Pinot Blanc.
Chalone Vineyard 2004 Pinot Blanc, California, Chalone Appellation - Estate Grown - 134 French Oak Barrels - 39,648 Bottles Produced (we had #437).
The vineyard has well drained soils rich in limestone; limited rainfall and low crop levels, produces wines with a full bouquet and unique hedonistic flavors.
