The 2000 Chardonnay Altos de Mendoza is a hedonist's delight. It bursts from the glass with boisterous tropical fruits, spices, vanilla, and candied pear flavors. This medium to-full bodied, rich, layered, and lush, fat, super-ripe Chardonnay bastes the tasters mouth with mangoes, papayas, creamed apples, and spices. It is well-balanced, extravagant, and sultry. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. Bravo!Pierre Rovani
