2018 Burgundy Alain Geoffroy Chablis, Chardonnay
Pale gold with greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid. The nose is rich and ripe, firstly full of flowers then going on to reveal its fruity aromas with sweet, suave scents. Taste is very powerful with a pronounced minerally character that enhances the fruit and fine vegetal flavours. Its mellowness harmonizes perfectly with its vivacity on a solid structure that illustrates perfectly the special nature of the wine.

Slightly smoky background and a hint of jam and spice. Easy drinking style but full bodied, fleshy, silky smooth with sweet and polished tannins.
