Elegant, premium White Burgundy showing lots of style (100% Chardonnay). Pale lemon with fine legs. Wonderful floral aromas of almond blossom complement ripe melon, stone fruits and juicy Gala apples. Abundant mellow Bramley apple fruit marries waxy Sicilian lemons on the palate adding a touch of restrained acidity alongside taught minerality. Medium-bodied with good breadth of flavour, a silky mouthfeel and a dry lingering finish. This wine has an air of opulence and elegance. Lovely now but it will reach its greatest potential in a few years’ time.
Perfect with shellfish and crustaceans including langoustines, Prawns in Garlic Butter or Lobster Thermidore. Try it with Chicken Kiev or Chicken Cordon Bleu. Also good with mature soft cheese such as ripe Brie de Meaux or Vacherin Mont d’Or.
