Saint-Veran, Burgundy, France. 13%
Light gold. Classic reserved chardonnay and hessian aromas. This is a lovely light white burgundy, some touches of green mingle with medium-bodied fruit. Flavour without the alchohol weight and sweetness of New World chardonnay. This lacks great concentration though – match carefully to food.
Showing little sign of its six years of age. Drink over the next 4 years. it occurs to be that I have a number of good Australian chardonnays in my cellar but very few can be aged for more than six years.
