'Ma Belle-Fille' Chardonnay 2017

Shay A
9.3

Very similar to the 2016 I opened 6-8 months ago, yet more open for business. Some of these wines have a reputation for “large and in charge”, but this was supremely balanced, toeing the line between Sonoma and white burgundy with richness. Whereas Aubert’s chards can be more powerful (and is normally my favorite), I’m always pleasantly surprised at how these show.

Aromatically it revealed sugar frosted stone fruits, guava, white peach, caramel dipped golden delicious apples and baking spices. It has a beautifully textured palate that starts as though it’s going to be dense, but finishes with a gorgeous lifted profile and plenty of acidity. Added notes on the palate of powdered lemon bar, floral honeysuckle, whipped lemon cream and even some honey roasted cashews. I’d pop this 2017 before the 2016 with how open it is, but it will cruise another 7-10yrs, easily.

Alto Adige Lagrein 2015

St. Michael-Eppan Lagein 2015: Full-bodied. Dark. Dry. Fruit flavors of plum & blackberry with hints of tobacco & leather. For me, this wine has the right amount of acidity and tannins, making for a smooth enjoyable finish. Enjoyed this Alto Adige wine with some Italian cross region goodness of mozzarella di bufala campana DOP! Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 17 days ago
