Description: This Chardonnay has a beautiful, young yellow colour with golden hints. Exuberant and complex, this wine conveys refreshing citrus aromas, fruity notes of white peaches, along with mineral hints. In mouth complex fruity flavours mingle in with lovely mineral notes. A young and fresh wine, very balanced, with a great acidity. A sure bet for almost all naturally oily and/or white meats: duck, pork, lamb, salmon; the simpler their cooking, the better. When it comes to pasta, Chardonnay likes creamy sauces, and/or with seafood. This is a well-liked aperitif wine, either on its own or with a cheese plate. A few suggestions to enjoy are pâté mousse with bacon and nuts, pork fillet with toasted almonds, and marinated shrimps.
