Luca Chardonnay 1999 Robert Parker-Wine Spectator

Luca Chardonnay 1999

90 points, ROBERT PARKER- WINE ADVOCATED

Issue: WA #140 Apr 2002 

The 1999 Chardonnay Altos de Mendoza has an exotic nose of candied mandarin oranges, super-ripe poached pears, spices, anise, and toast. On the palate, it has a luscious, oily texture, copious quantities of super-ripe white fruits, and a full-bodied personality. It is a thick, highly expressive, tropical flavored Chardonnay with delightful balance and a long, supple finish. Anticipated maturity: now-2006+. Pierre Rovani
