Picardy Chardonnay 2015

Pale lemon with hints of gold.

NOSE

The nose presents at first spiced toasted oak, aniseed, white pepper, touches of nutmeg, fresh vanilla bean.

PALATE

The palate is textural and intense, the fruit leaving behind a lemon curd, marzipan flavour in the mouth. The acid keeps this wine tight and together, the fruit characters are long.

PAIRING

Grilled, seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops, simply roast chicken with slow roast tomatoes, white truffles. Sea bass with fennel purée.
