This winery is fast becoming one of my favorites for Chardonnay and Santa Crus is definitely my favorite region in the world for Chardonnay. That is a pretty bold statement but there it is. Light golden in color. The nose has lemons, lemon candy, minerals and slight vanilla. On the palate, this is ever so slightly sweet/ripe with lemons and great minerality. It has such great energy and cut. It glides down the palate, and lasts forever. Delicious. Complex. This is obviously young but seems like it should be a twenty year wine. It drinks great on its own but will work well with sea foods and lighter fowl dishes.
