1997 Clos du Bois Chardonnay “Calcaire”

Don’t believe the back label, this is NOT at all an oaky wine. Pineapple, pine needles, and minerals (!) lead the pack. There might be a touch of residual sugar, but just enough to fatten it and not enough to come across as sweet. One of my three or four favorite Cal chards.
