Thursday, 6/28, Old Town Alexandria, VA
I started my day off with an excellent, made-to-order, omelette with a side of honey dew melon. I hopped on the Metro, the only way to travel around D.C., embarking on an all day, extremely productive, meeting. I know that's an oxymoron but this one actually accomplished something. I returned to my hotel around 4:30 p.m., or so, and promptly got out of my suit and into some shorts. As free happy hour arrived, I headed to the lobby and had a couple of glasses of the 2005 Copperidge Chardonnay by E & J Gallo. Very light yellow in color with nothing noteworthy on the nose. On the palate, a little citrus and vanilla with an "easy" finish. 3Corkscrews for this one based strictly on taste as the value, free, is always good! Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!

I accidentally stumbled on this wine at the Hyatt Regency in Birmingham. Suitably refreshed after a nasty days work, I wandered to the club lounge to enjoy a nibbles and pre-dinner G&T. After chatting for a few moments to the butler he decided the best thing for me was a refreshing glass of Chardonnay. To be honest it isn't my usual first choice (i'm a Prosecco girl)anyway I was in no mood to argue. What a surprise I got when the chilled fruity liquid slipped down. Where was that typical rounded oakiness? This is deliciously fine fruity with a lovely finish and good 'legs'. Very quaffable. Went down a treat with the cheese and salmon nibbles. Well done E&J on another great wine.
