Oops! Guess I'm not going to win todays' spelling bee!
IW brought this over last night for dinner - y'all should be so lucky!
Deep, golden color, silky clear legs. Heady aromas of apricot, melon, spicy oak, all that and more on the palate. Creamy, soft apricot and citrus, sweet-cream butter, juicy acidity, incredible balance and a 25-30 second finish. One of the best Chards I've ever tasted. 95 pts. At $60-65 retail, it's definitely a special-occasion wine but well worth the $$.
Had my last bottle of '97 Babcock Grand Cuvee after this - also a great bottle of chard but not quite up to par w/the Leeuwin.
(musings from the great white thread-killer!)
