This is a simply gorgeous wine. The complex nose carries tones of vanilla, apple, citrus, toasted almond, butterscotch and ripe fruit. The palate is equally rich and rewarding, with great structure and balance throughout. Lively acidity carries through to the end of the lip-smacking finish. Delicious now with lightly seasoned chicken dishes, or fuller-flavoured fish, it will evolve over 5 years into an even more intriguing experience. (VINTAGES panel, July 2010)
The les Chaumes vineyard was divided long ago and this wine is sourced from the 'commune' side (therefore not a 1er cru as often written). That said, this is exceptional Chardonnay! And at this price, i`m shocked – it out performs many others at twice the price. I`ve enjoyed this label in both the `02 and `05 vintages and cannot recommend it any higher. Stunningly soft and complex. With a couple of years in the cellar the oak, fruit, and acidity will be in perfect harmony. Enjoy this with the turkey feast on Thanksgiving in 2013. Tasted April 2012.

Pale straw colour from the subtle oaking. This is a well made Chardonnay. Notes of butter. pear and white flowers on the nose hint that the wine has elegance. Minerality comes at the front followed by smooth acidity with almond and apple in the finish. Great wine showing balance and purity. Serve with trout or Coq au Vin. Drink now to 2014.
