Structured and well made Chardonnay. Christophe is great at letting the wine shine through, not messing with the spice cabinet

Crisp with a buttery finish. It's not Jarvis but I would rank it with Palmaz.

Not a huge Chard fan but enjoyed the structure and lasting finish. Nice citrus and apple, not too oaky.
