Chateau Potelle Chardonnay VGS Mt. Veeder 1996, 86 points

1996 Chateau Potelle Chardonnay VGS Mt. VeederChateau Potelle

(USA, California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder)

Beautiful golden color hinting on bright yellow. The nose has lemon peel, melon and anisette.  The palate is a little hot and not real long.  Very jumpy for a 1996.  I expected this wine to be more velvety. I only get some lemon on the palate and it quickly transitions to a spicy feeling.  Little black pepper and lemon peel on the finish.  I thought this chardonnay was of good quality but I would have to pass at 50 dollars a bottle.
