Looking for buttery, toasty, oaky Chardonnay

LisaH_NYJanuary 24, 2002

Hello All,

I love wine. I love Chardonnay, I personally refer to it as Liquid Gold. I am always looking for a good heavy Chard and would like to know some of your favorites. My new love is Zin (not the pink stuff, yuck) I do not know of very many good brands in this category so would also like your inputs well. Thanks, Lisa

Two of my favourite Chardonnays are 1997 Mer Soleil and the 1999 Landmark Overlook. Both are big buttery oaky Chardonnays, but with finesse.

We love big red wines from just about any country. Here are a few that I have at the moment. 1997 Chianti Classico Fontodi
1994 Ribera del Duero, Val Sotillo REservea from Bodegas Ismael Arroyo, 1995 Ribera del Duero, Hacienda Monasterio, and a number of the Riojas from Bodegas Muga

Shiraz from Australia , 1999 Draycott Shiraz from Burge Family Winemakers, 1999 Sharaz Henry's Drive, Padthaway.

1997 Siena from Ferrari-Carano, a great blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Malbec.

I could go on an on but I am getting thirsty.

I enjoy Rutherford and Kendall Jackson Chardonnays for "oakiness". I usually won't touch anything pink or sweet but had some Berringer White Merlot last weekend with some friends and we all agreed it was absolutely delicious.
