Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From Pays D'oc, Rousillon in Southern France this creamy Chardonnay has vanilla, apple and floral aromas. The palate shows apple, lemon, vanilla and buttered toast with a dry, satiny mouthfeel and elegant finish.
Tasted Sept 2016
Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Ripened in the sunshine of Southern France, apple and tropical fruit flavours, and sweet spice are complemented with gentle oak influence.
Pair with summer salads and grilled chicken.
Drink now, or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: October 2014.
This southern French Chardonnay is a custom cuvee created by the importer Eric Solomon. It's made from 100% Chardonnay grapes that are sourced from two vineyards. The wine is matured for 3 months on Viognier lees in both Burgundian oak barrels and stainless steel vats. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
