John Turi - Wine, White Wine

Chateau Montelena, Chardonnay, 2009

Wine Rating: 93

Spring has sprung and summer has begun. Well not quite officially, perhaps, but as soon as June arises my palate begins to crave the delicious white wines that have been relaxing, waiting all season for just the right time to be enjoyed. In a previous review, I stated that I only drink white wine during the summer months. But I do make an occasional exception, such as enjoying a lovely dessert wine after a fine meal. My two favorite dessert wines are Dolce by Far Niente and, of course, the outstanding Sauternes from Château d’Yquem.
