Here is a classic interpretation of true Burgundian Chardonnay raised in oak (10% new) for twelve months to produce an easy-to-love wine with a silky texture and toasty aromas, plus hints of vanilla, tropical fruit, and apricot. Taste this beauty from Colin to understand why many people consider Burgundy the pinnacle of Chardonnay and why it is often imitated, but never duplicated.
This charmer diverges slightly from the traditional idea of Chardonnay. With its wispy aromas of mandarin orange, honeysuckle, and beeswax, this northern Italian wine transforms on the palate to showcase Chardonnay’s bright and zesty side. Kante’s vineyards located on the Carso plateau give a unique spin to a familiar grape.
“Whoa. Hmm . . . Hey, that’s pretty good!” These are my inner thoughts each time I taste this Jurassien Chardonnay. The initial aromas of caramelized nuts, dried apples, and stone fruit may catch you off guard, but the palate is familiar, offering freshness, tension, and minerality. The complex, slightly sherry-like aromas come from organically farmed grapes, raised in barrel for fifteen months, with frequent top-offs. This wine shows how truly diverse Chardonnay can be, and no wine drinker should be without that experience.
