Gerard Bertrand Domaine de L’Aigle chardonnay 2007

90 points

Quite a surprise. I think this is the best French chardonnays I’ve tasted outside of Burgundy. And nothing from Burgundy comes close at twice the price. A bit oaky at present but this will pass.

Reminds me of the new wave of cool climate Australian chardonnays.

From a high elevation (450 metres) site near the Pyrenees.
