Au Bon Climat - Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard 2016Surprisingly Rich
One whiff reveals this is obviously Chardonnay made in an old-world style. Minerality and reduction from extended lees contact will remind you of Burgundy. Sweet barrel spice mixes nicely with a lemon limey note.
Surprising rich on the palate, classic varietal flavours of apple, citrus and vanilla go on and on.
This lively Chardonnay will go with a wide assortment of foods. Lobster Pappardelle with chive butter or fresh corn soufflé with bacon and comté cheese are just a couple of favourites with this wine.
