Chardonnay 2011 75cl cl

Ripe, exotic fruit - a mix of mango and banana. Fruity and charming, balanced and long on the palate.

Aged surprisingly well. Another one of those crazy Alpine Wines surprises

You love chardonnay but not everyone around you does. Go for this one.
Exotic but not heavy
Cool climate chardonnay baby!
not too cold as the wine unfolds as it warms up. 10, 12 degrees, could even handle warmer. Good in summer then.

It's a great "sip on its own" wine, for conversations with friends.

It can then go straight into nibbles and food. The mango angle makes me want indian and asian starters - thinking tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, chicken satay, bhajis

Otherwise what we're having tonight: piccata with classic milanese risotto.

Tasting Notes

Joelle says of the 2008 (March 2018) - this is surprisingly fruity and lively for 10 year old "simple" Chardonnay. The cool climate probably helped here. It has no right to be this good. Mango and spice and a finish straight out of Columbo. Read the tasting notes, it'll make sense. One to grab and love.

Ben says (May 2017): The 2011 is beautifully clear and clean. The art of the winemaker shows throughout this wine. It is very similar to the 2008 with few, if any, vintage differences.

Flo says (July 2018): The 2011 still shines through with tropical fruit flavours and clean flavours. A beautiful Chardonnay that will surprise even those who traditionally eschew the Chardonnay grape
