Review and Rating: **+ Clos des Bois Reserve Chardonnay, 2006, Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA

Review:

In the glass, the Clos des Bois Reserve Chardonnay, 2006, is almost clear and transparent, slight yellow glint. Aromas are shy, mostly of classic oaked buttery chardonnay. A touch of green apple.

It comes across as quite lithe and balanced on the palate, slight sweetness offsetting the acids and mild oak. Admirable, though not profound. Almost seems like 25% water has been added to lighten it. Two plus stars out of five.
