2008 Llai Llai Chardonnay Becky Sue Epstein March 21, 2011 Tasting Notes 2 Comments A new world Chardonnay that an old world aficionado can love, especially at this price. Well balanced aromas and flavors. Some fruit but layered on top of Chardonnay’s own varietal characteristics, and a nice, finish, too. (Not masked by vanilla or tropic flavors, as happens all too often.) In this wine, the fruit is more like fruit leather. Some peaches and apricots stand out in this wine, which displays remarkable depth, stabilized by the right amount of acidity. Let it warm up for 20 minutes if it’s been in the fridge.
