Save $26.00 (47%)



The Bear Point Chardonnay exhibits a powerful floral element in this vintage, with lemon blossom and jasmine backed by apricot and kumquat flavors. The palate is marked by lushness at the forefront, a generosity that's balanced by all that exuberant fruit and a crème brulée character that frames the wine through a lengthy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Chardonnay Bear Point comes across as implosive and tightly wound. The Bear Point is made from the same Chardonnay clone as the Gravel Bench, but here the terrain yields a decidedly austere, taut style of Chardonnay. If the Bear Point opens up it will merit a higher score. Still, it is impossible not to admire the wine's energy and big, broad-shouldered frame. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
