Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is great with vanilla, lemon cream, slight wax note. Full bodied. Great acidity. Deep and complex albeit obviously young. On the palate, the lemon cream takes the stage with some background vanilla. Long finish. This it rich without being overblown. One of, if not the best RM Chard I have had. This should drink well for another 15 years. Great on its own, this will work well with lobster or salmon.
