Domaine Bellene Santenay ‘Les Charmes Dessus’ ‘Vieilles Vignes’ Blanc 2008

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 07-Jul-2011
This has a bright, light, lemon-straw colour with a pale edge. Shy and delicately expressed on nose, this is still very tightly bound, with white stonefruit aromas underlined by subtle, balanced complex reductive, nutty elements. A very fine, elegantly proportioned wine on palate, there are flavours of sweet, ripe, citrus fruit, with mealiness and nutty interest. The wine has crisp, racy acidity and is surprisingly fresh for the vintage, which has produced broader-styled wines generally. A lighter Chardonnay wine with some good interest and fineness of style which should cellar 3-4+ years.  Jul 2011
