Consistent Rogov Chardonnay style?

Postby Jan Schultink » Sat Jul 26, 2008 12:39 pm

2006 Recanati Chardonnay Reserve - Israel, Galilee (7/26/2008)
Nice, but somehow stuck in the middle, not a fresh/light summer wine, not a complex and rich reserve Chardonnay. Green/yellow in color. Citrus nose. Opening up with more citrus, fig, melon and vanilla. Full bodied, heavy texture. Creamy finish with some yeast and dried apricot sneaking in. Remarkable similarity in style to Yarden Chardonnay, or Yarden Odem Chardonnay. Maybe this wine enters a second life and will start to turn around with a bit more age. (88, maybe 87 pts.)

I tend to agree with most of Rogov's notes and scores ( :oops: ), even the Israeli ones. Looking up his own note for the wine above though, we are a bit off. The same with Yarden's Chardonnays. Fig, vanilla, apricot, it might be complex, but I just don't like it. At least he is consistent, and I am as well I think! Big :D.
