Clos Du Val 2007 Carneros Chardonnay

Clos Du Val 2007 Carneros Chardonnay, $16.99-$24.99, 90 points, strikes me poetically as the color of  a New England autumn morning as the fog lifts. Okay, corny, but when you look through this wine, there are all kinds of red, yellow, green, and orange colors that seem to mimic its surroundings. Again, okay, and I've never gone on with the color of a wine before, but there is always a first time.
French name, and rightly so, considering the Chablis quality of this California (Napa Valley) Chardonnay; with apple and lemon-oil on the nose, and a clean crisp texture that carries-over to the palate, finishing long with ginger-spice.
Clos Du Val continues to impress me.
