Tasting notes Brilliant yellow with some gold hues. The Chardonnay variety is typically expressed along with the elegance of the high quality French oak. On the nose, it reveals aromas of lime, orange blossoms and pineapple along with butter, sweet wood, hints of almond as well as minerality. On the mouth it is rich and complex with a crisp acidity and flavors of citrus and tropical fruits coupled with vanilla and hints of coconut. The aftertaste is rich, powerful, complex and long.
