2008 Robert Mondavi Napa Chardonnay
January 28, 2011 - Norman Bentley
#05-11PIE My wife Mary, "The Chardonnay Queen", almost always cooks from recipes, while I usually just " whip something up". However I wanted to prepare Chicken Florentine the other night, and having never done it before, I looked up the Paula Deen recipe online, which I knew would be good. It was not only good, it was great!
We enjoyed this repast with a bottle of 2008 Robert Mondavi Napa Chardonnay, which was an excellent accompaniment to our meal. We have had this Napa stalwart many times in the past, but this was our first sampling of the 2008 vintage. The 2008 Napa Chardonnay is as fresh as spring to the nose, and backs up its abundant bouquet with swirling flavors of pear and pineapple. The finish is fresh and clean with a slight citrus note. The wine underwent partial malolactic fermentation and was barrel-aged for nine months. This 100% Chardonnay is 14.4% alcohol.
The result is a clean and crisp wine, which is a wonderful partner to foods ranging from fowl to seafood. We really enjoyed Paula Deen's recipe for the Chicken Florentine, and the Robert Mondavi Napa Chardonnay along with it. Look up the recipe online and enjoy this dinner yourself!
