From J.L. Gigueure, Matchbook Old Head 2018 Chardonnay is a great value California Chard, creamy on the palate with ripe apple, vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours. Zesty and nicely balanced.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, pork chops, seafood Alfredo.

Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Harvested in the Dunnigan Hills region of California, by the Giguiere Family, the Matchbook 2018 Chardonnay offers aromas of starfruit, pear, lime peel, butter, vanilla and pie crust. A full body, paired with just the right amount of acidity, contribute to a fresh and well-layered finish. Palate: cooked pineapple, pear, honeysuckle, saline, toast, baking spice and pie crust. Enjoy!
