Domaine Drouhin – 2007 Arthur Chardonnay

A special moment begs for a special wine, and this wine was a perfect choice for our anniversary dinner.  The golden straw color draws you in, and the first aromas were a delight to the senses.  In the air were delicate florals that danced around the honey-kissed fruits.  The fruit was a beautiful blend of light citrus and the tiniest bit of stone fruit.  And my first sip….absolutely lovely.  The smoothness of this wine was absolutely memorable.  The balance was amazing.  The very light acidity was in perfect balance with the honey butter flavor.  The citrus was soft but refreshing, with meyer lemon that softly lingered through the long finish.  This wine made the perfect pairing with a sampling of fish preparations that ranged from a smoked trout with whiskey cream, to crab and lobster en croute.  I look forward to my next bottle of this wonderful wine.
