On a big tasting day that myself and Adam attended this little beauty was our favourite wine by some distance. And this comes from the one of the team who doesn't usually go in for oaky Chardonnays in a big way. This wine is truly sublime though and will delight both New World drinkers and, I feel, Burgundy fans too. The nose is rich with a heady mix of vanilla, toffee, hazelnut and rich, ripe tropical fruit. All of these follow on to the palate and combine with ripe green apple, ripe melon flavours, nuttiness and a soft touch of smoke and spice. The finish is awesome and I would put this wine in the world class bracket.
