Impressive. Great flavor amplitude and singing acidity. Floral, toasty, pear and apple notes. Morish

After some decanting the sharpness mellowed out and this became more balanced. Crisp apple layered with vanilla and stone fruit. The Philippe Colin Chenevottes was a stronger wine.

Good but not excellent, an thus, not worth its high price. Nose is classic Chardonnay with vanilla notes. Palette starts with vanilla, butter, and peach--just perfect, but then transitions to a strong lemon aftertaste that does not mix well. After breathing an hour, which I would recommend before consuming, the lemon flavor becomes milder and the wine better. While lemon and citrus go well with Sauvignon Blanc or Vermentino, they don't mix well with a buttery Chardonnay.

2013 vintage. Chenevottes. Good and decent and balanced wine. But not hitting top notes.
