Novellum Chardonnay 2016

David T

If you are looking for a really good inexpensive Chardonnay, as Val Kilmer said in role as Doc Holiday in the movie “Tombstone”, “ I’m (Novellum) your Huckleberry.” This is around $10-$12 depending on where you buy it.

On the nose, cream, kiwi, white peach, lemon, lime, Bosc pear, orange citrus, green apple, butter, vanilla, honey notes, soft, light spice, chalky volcanic minerals, jasmine, spring flowers and white & yellow lilies.

The body is full, creamy and waxy. Beeswax/honeycomb, cream, kiwi, white peach, lemon, lime, Bosc pear, orange citrus, green apple, pineapple, butter, vanilla, soft, light sharp spice with a touch of heat, chalky volcanic minerals, jasmine, spring flowers and white & yellow lilies. Round beautiful acidity and a long, Rich, full, delicious, well balanced finish. A steal for $10-$12.

Photo of; the area this wine is from, Roussillon where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean. Winemakers, Jean-Marc & Eliane Lafage & Owner Eric Solomon of Eric Solmon Selections.

The Novellum is fermented in tank, 30% aged in French oak with the remainder in tank on the lees of Viognier. Average age of the vines are 30 years and are farmed organically.

Bought a case of it after having my first bottle
Parker 92 for $10.00- $12.00 is a no brainer

Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Trying out all the highly rated $10.00-$20.00 whites to guzzle during the summer heat & Beach bike rides. This is a wine advocate 91 for $15.00
1. Novellum,ridiculous for $10.00
2. Substance
3. This one
4. Matias Santa Lucia Highlands
But basically splitting hairs on all of them,
Matias is the most complex.

Unoaked Chardonnay

Reminds me of Novellum, without the oak treatment. Muted nose. Fresh fruit profile on the palate. Hints of rocks and stones on the finish. For $11.99, this is a buy by the truckload. — a year ago

I’m pissed, J. I went to my local retailer today and forgot to scoop up some more, sniff.


Côtes Catalanes Chardonnay 2016

Not my preference (this is (virtually) unoaked and almost Sauvignon Blanc like) but for under 10 euro excellent value for money — 3 months ago

Novellum Chardonnay

Color of beautiful gold. Nose of roasted nuts, Sprite, ripe banana, citrus, grapefruit, and a tiny bit of spice. Taste of citrus, apple, grapefruit, ripe banana again, a touch of mineral, quite silky and a bit nuts flavor too. Tasty with a kick of spice, sweetness, acidity, and mineral in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable. — 4 months ago
