Canada — Ontario • $28.95 • 90/100

The Closson Chase Chardonnays are becoming more vibrant, with oak treatment refined and gentler, allowing their Prince Edward County terroir (rather than the barrel program) to tell its story. The 2014 Chardonnay is medium straw-yellow, with obvious (but not strident) oaky resin and vanilla notes on the attack, but lemon and yellow apple fruit shining through. The structure is nicely balanced, with crisp acidity, modest alcohol and some creamy richness. A worthy step towards elegance and directness, and I hope that the success of this wine will encourage further steps to follow. Very good indeed. • Tasted 2017-03-06 • LCBO id#148866 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCLOSSON CHASE VINEYARDS INC. (Agent)
