Expert review

A ripe and fully mature nose retains an appealing freshness on the mildly exotic dried white and yellow orchard fruit and floral scents that possess just enough Chablis character to be persuasive. There is good richness to the delicious, round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that deliver solid if not truly special depth and persistence on the lightly mineral-inflected finale

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
