Jam Cellars Butter California Chardonnay 2014

$15.99

A phenomenal buy in California Chardonnay! One of the fastest selling Chardonnays we have ever carried. This wine always sells out waaaay before the next vintage is released. If you have purchased Butter Chardonnay in the past, stock up while you can.  Made by winemaker Rob Lloyd of Romabuer fame, this delivers on it promise of a rich, tropical fruit and buttery palate with a creamy texture and lots of toasty vanilla oak spice. Owners John and Michelle (JaM) Truchard have created quite a following in a relatively short amount of time. With the name of their wine label being called JaM, they employed the help of winemaker Rob Lloyd (who spent 8 years at Rombauer) to produce a rich, jammy style of Cabernet. Well, that wine was a huge hit, and since Rob knew a thing or two about making Chardonnays, it only made sense that this white wine should be called "Butter". As the name implies, this is a rich, buttery style of Chardonnay laced with aromas of baked lemons and mandarin oranges mingle with a hint of spice and smoke. The palate begins with crisp pineapple, bright citrus and ripe melon while a soft creaminess rounds out the finish. This Chardonnay is ready for immediate enjoyment and is suited to a wide variety of foods including white fish, smoked salmon and creamy pasta dishes.

It's like a lemony custard dipped in butter. The buttery notes came out later after about an hour. Before that was mostly yellow and green fruits dominating. I'm really enjoying buttery Chards! Cheers!

The name says it all. I typically steer away from this style of Chards, but since they were being so forthright I figured I would give it a go. It was actually nice for what it was, and since its been so long since I've selected the big malo version it was sort of refreshing.

Butter. The kind of taste you get from taking a bite off a stick of butter. No citric notes. I'm not even sure there's any oak on it, it's just kind of oily. It's totally one-sided. Not my "glass of wine", but apparently people love it! Not sure why!?! I'd pay 8 bones for this. 15's way too high. Great label!

Very buttery chard. Anyone who likes steel aged, fruit forward, smooth and buttery chard will enjoy.

This is a great wine. It's indulgent on its own and true to its name (I love a vanilla-y/oaky/buttery Chardonnay). For me it's bit a more challenging to pair with a meal, so I usually go for this on it's own or something simple or drink it by itself.
