Domaine Lafage Cadireta Chardonnay

Domaine Lafage Cadireta Chardonnay

€19.95
 
Cadireta represents pure Chardonnay – other than for its having been raised on lees of viognier, whence it definitely picked-up scents of acacia to complement those of musky-sweet peony as well as intimations of the apple and lime, that lusciously and downright refreshingly inform a flatteringly polished subtyl creamy palate. A hint of cress also points to the role of viognier and adds welcome counterpoint and cut to a lingering finish.

Garret's Recommendation

Fascinating Chardonnay that has been aged on Viognier lees. I find it a great change of pace from conventional Chardonnay.
