California. Chardonnay. Gulp!

August 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

Today’s Portland Press Herald column goes where few wine snobs will go: California, where they make wine from…get this: Chardonnay! I tried a bunch of oaky, buttery brioche bombs and lived to tell. I really tried to not be snobby about it. I mean, I’m still one of those guys…y’know, the ones who keep talking about minerals and lemons all the time. But doing what you don’t want to do usually leads to LEARNING. And I did learn. I also probably missed some nice CCs that you know of, so weigh in if you like. Meanwhile, I’m heading back to Burgundy (or if it’s to Napa I must go, I’m drinking Sauvignon Blanc).
