So, it’s not a a Chardonnay. Rather, it’s made from the Aligoté grape which I’d never heard of before. It’s a native of Burgundy.
- Smells like: an intense eucalyptus, toast and yeast – sounds strange but somehow combines well
- Tastes like: apricot, peach with some aniseed, again working perfect together. A long finish and very distinctive.
- Verdict: I was very impressed with this one, but the price means I’d probably not buy it.
- Available: Enowine (though not on their website yet)
