Robust and bordering on cocky, this is Chardonnay that wakes up in the morning with a woodie. The 2008 AU BON CLIMAT Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is ready to go and looking for action. Rich with grapefruit and key lime pie notes, this is all about power— it’s tart, acidic and sharp. The man wears double-breasted suits and packs Padrons in his inner pocket wherever he goes. What a stud. -J.M.
