It opens with honeysuckle on the nose, with the richness of a sauterne. Fruit aromas of fig and melon are followed by more complex notes of honey and brown sugar. Baking spices with hints of vanilla and almond follow as caramelized sugar notes add to the voluptuous depth of aromas. On the palate, grilled pineapple flavors offer fresh acidity while creaminess is balanced. Cream and brioche linger while the freshness of fruit remains forward. The wine is a satisfying weight with present oak that is delicately integrated.
This opulent Chardonnay can complement a wide variety of dishes. Lobster bisque is a natural match, as well as poached fish or pasta with a cream sauce.
