Beautiful chardonnay. Meursault like. Grape skin, grape soda, oak on the palate as an aspect not a dominating factor, old world toast. 5 percent new oak, remainder is used oak.

Absolutely delicious. Wet stone, green apple and pear, nice weight and a memorable finish.

Slightly sweet, full bodied without being overly creamy or oaky.

Would benefit with more cellar time but very balanced, mild presence of oak, layered aromas, nice finish / great with pasta.

Such a great distinctive wine!! Interesting tastes. Lovely hints of tropical fruits. Pineapples. Green apples. Wet stone. Soft acidity. Perfect pairing companion for our seafood risotto. Saluti a tutti!

ridge just does everything right.... this is pricey, but it has the character and sense of terroir lacking in many a california chardonnay.

2013 Ridge Monte Bello Chardonnay. HB w MnD and J&D B. We drank this after, but in comp to the 2013 Peter Michael Point Rouge Chardonnay and this surprised us as the winner, especially since K and I love the Peter Michael Chardonnay so much. J really preferred this wine so much he was thinking abt stocking some of this wine himself. This wine was creamy and had much more tropical fruit, plus oak. Delicious and we really, really enjoyed this wine!

Extremely oaky, butterscotch and vanilla. Becomes a lot drier once it opens. Still traces of a bit of oak and vanilla. But of minerality.
