Our shipment of 12 bottles was poorly corked and the quality of the wine suffered as a consequence. It crossed our minds that La Crema may have unloaded a botched batch, including our order, for quick distribution. Normal quality control processes certainly would have caught the error and management must have known about it and knowingly let the batch go out in hopes that the problem might quickly disappear. At least that is what we suspect might have happened. Otherwise, La Crema is simply not the wine it once was.

One of the best California Chardonnays around. Full bodied and buttery. We haven't found anything to match this Chard for under $35.
