Tasting Notes - Full-bodied, elegant Burgundy style white, showing citrus, pineapple, green apple, toasted bread and fig aromas

Reviews - Wine Advocate-91 points - The 2005 Chardonnay "Blanc du Castel" is one of the best dry whites in this report. It was, like the reds, sourced from a vineyard at an altitude of 2,400 feet, and aged for 16 months in French oak and on the lees. There is a bite to this wine as it airs out, perhaps just a touch of tannin. The oak is obvious up front and particularly early on, but it recedes into the wine more and more with air. It does remain obvious, but so are the lees nuances and fruit. There is a lot of good stuff going on here. There is generally good balance, some brightness, some depth, and a respectable finish that lingers and has some intensity. This is my pick for favorite dry white in this report. Drink now-2011. This is Kosher.

Domaine du Castel is one of Israel’s most prestigious wineries, invariably on most short lists in the “best winery of Israel” debate. Founded in 1988, it produced its first wine only in 1992. It is a little bigger than some of the micro boutiques, but still produces only around 8,300 cases a year. There is a French sensibility on the labels, from the winery’s name, to the identification of the appellation (Judean Hills, near Jerusalem) as Haute Judee. This is not surprising, perhaps, given that Castel is a family run business, and son Ariel trained in Burgundy and then worked at Domaine Emile Voarick.

Food Pairing Recommendations - Lightly flavored grilled chicken or fish
