This is a clone of the traditional white Chardonnay grape and the term musqué in the name implies pronounced aromatics. Another and perhaps more familiar example is Gewürztraminer, the musqué clone of the Traminer grape. Expect a mix of minerality, citrus and a black pepper finish which lingers for at least a minute. Atypical Chardonnay for sure but really enjoyable. (northof9finewine, March 2011)
