Pale yellow straw color; explosive aromas of baked apple, pear tart, meyer lemon and bright minerals framed by nutmeg, clove and beeswax notes. These aromas cascade onto the palate with overt mouth filling honeyed richness that always maintains focus and mineral precision. Signs of a broad oatmealy texture begin to develop before penetrating acidity leads to a fresh saline finish with a lick of sweet lime. Serve at no cooler than 55 degrees and drink between 2011 and 2016.

Wine AdvocateMy favorite 2008 DuMol white is the 2008 Chardonnay Chloe, which comes primarily from the Ritchie Vineyard's 36-year old parcel planted with the old Wente clone. A big, extroverted perfume of orange rinds, citrus oil, lychee nuts, quince and white currants intermingled with a hint of crushed rocks soars from the glass of this dry, full-bodied Chardonnay. With exuberant fruit intensity, a structured mouthfeel and amazing length, it should drink well for a decade or more.
