Description

Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet, Cote de Beaune, Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin

“A generous and elegant wine. Light golden colour. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate”.

Critical Acclaim:
92 Points – James Suckling
Very attractive aromatic definition with an array of stones, minerals, yellow and white peaches and a bright, almost floral edge. Beautiful elegance and purity on the long palate. The peach, grilled-hazelnut and yellow-citrus flavors hold long. Drink or hold.
