Chardonnay * 75cl * 13% ABV * Burgundy, France
An expressive, concentrated wine with a refreshing, mineral backbone. Lively ripe citrus and yellow peach fruits on the nose combine with hints of acacia honey and white flowers. The palate is juicy and refreshing with a pithy grapefruit character and a zesty chalky, mineral note which runs through to the long finish. Hints of white pepper add further complexity. This is very serious and persistent with good ageing potential.
2013 is a very fresh, forward early drinking vintage - so is drinking perfectly now and for the next four or five years.
