Abbotts Delaunay Les Fruits Sauvages Chardonnay 2021, France

Chardonnay from France - Other
Review Date : 28-Mar-2023
Bright, pale straw yellow with depth, even colour throughout. The nose is full and lush with aromas of apple and pear, blossom and a hint of creamy detail. Medium-bodied, pear, apple and stonefruit aromas melded with blossom and a subtle hint of butter and nutty elements. The fruit is forward and generous, supported by juicy acidity. A slight hint of nutty nuance and the creamy palate added complexity. This South of France Chardonnay is generous with lush fruit, a round palate and is adorned with subtle nutty elements. Match with chicken and pork over the next 3 years. 1/3 of the blend fermented in oak barrels (new and one-year-old), aged 9 months in barrels on lees, underwent MLF. 2/3 fermented in stainless steel vats, no MLF. 13.5% alc. 17/20 pts (85 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $24
