Schug 2000 Chardonnay (Carneros)

Here's a lean, angular wine that drinks surprisingly tart and lemony, despite sur lies aging and 100% barrel fermentation. Airing reveals notes of pippin apples and a wallop of smoky oak, but the palate impression is acidly citric and dry. A Chardonnay for shellfish? —S.H.
