Best bottle of white wine I've had so far. Golden yellow color and very well balanced. Competed well in balance catagory with a Ridge 2001 Montebello, which I thought was one of the best balanced wines I ever had. The bouquet reminded me of a red wine.Rich and very pleasant, no harshness or bitterness. Tastes occur at middle of tongue but fades in about 15-25 seconds, leaving no off aftertastes as some Chards do. Decanted for 2-3 days and it did change. Fruit became more pronounced but also became slightly harsher, as if the alcohol came peeking out from behind the fruit. Buying a DuMol Chard is to me a no brainer. Best enjoyed in its youth and consumed before 2010.
