"Although it is nearly 70% Chardonnay, Benoit Tarlant's 2004 Aerienne is one of the bigger, richer wines readers will find in this vintage. Lemon peel, hazelnuts, spice, baked apple and pastry give the 2004 its creamy, burnished personality. Vinification in barrel gives the wine much of its signature rich texture and layered feel. In other words, the Aerienne is a winner. "
