Nice wine with good acid. Crisp apple and pear with a substantial finish. Very enjoyable. Would not hesitate to serve with any buttery seafood dish.

Stone fruit, citrus, crisp. Classic white burg and a good QPR ⚡️

The first nose is very mineral : crushed rocks only. Then after a while hay comes, then lemon, then after a while pineapple and mango. The nose literally blossoms in the glass. Magnificent ! The palate is pretty straight forward at first with a solid acid backbone and some width with lemon but it gets bigger and wider after a while and the exotic fruits make an appearance in mid palate that turns this bad boy into a beauty. The finish is precise, pretty long, with both lemon and exotic fruits taking turns to show off. It was served along an entrée dish consisting of fresh goat cheese and herbs, candied apricot and pear, beef jamon (cecina) and olive oil. Perfect pairing!

Good Chardonnay, well-made but uninteresting. A little sweet for my taste, but classic in style, with no manipulation.
