Understated & Elegant. Gosh I love chardonnay like this. No heavy oak, just beautiful juice in a perfect state; soft, subtle, yet elegant. All to often chardonnay is tart, underripe & overoaked, Examples like this remind you what this grape is capable of. While I prefer Spanish grenache over French, the French don't play with chardonnay like Americans and Aussies. They know better. Served this chilled with a smoked spiral ham and couscous. Well matched. Made for a great meal. Just wish I had more.
Consumed over 45 minutes. Fresh, enjoyable basic chardonnay, with apple/citrus fruit, hints of floral notes, and just a little bitter/tartness towards the finish. Maybe a bit mild on the mid-palate, but easy to drink on a warm afternoon and pretty nicely balanced overall.
Some sweetness and tropical fruit on nose. Minerals, lemon, pineapple in front. Nice tart finish. I found it a bit oily with perhaps some secondary fermentation (?) that put me off. I wasn't wild about this but my wife liked it and she has a better palate than me. For me, it wasn't a typical clean and fresh Macon.
