Mathieu-Gandon Cuvée Esprit Saveur
Remarkably complex for the price point, with the chardonnay aged in barrel for six years before aging in the bottle another four years! The wood is barely perceptible, but it lends to wonderful and classic old world chardonnay aromas. A complex mix of apple, pear, grapefruit, floral notes, biscuit, and limestone. Balanced, fresh, and smooth acidity. The finish is clear and long leaving behind notes of minerals, limestone and chalk. Would be great on its own, but also with parmesan shavings or other hard cheeses.
