Jean Chartron Bourgogne ‘Clos de la Combe’ Chardonnay 2010

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 29-Apr-2013
Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow, pale on rim. The bouquet is full in volume with god weight, showing up-front white stonefruit and citrus aromas along with oak interest, the nose showing ripeness, but in a straightforward manner. Medium-bodied, this is simplistic and up-front on palate, the citrussy flavours light, plain and bordering on the dilute side, but clean and correct. Oaking is well-in the background and in balance. There is vinosity and good acid balance, the palate leading to a dry finish. The bouquet suggests more, but this is a straightforward white Bourgogne to drink over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from 2.14 ha of vines surrounded by Puligny-Montrachet AOC, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 10% new barrels. 16.0/20 Apr 2013 RRP $39.00
