The 2005 VGS Chardonnay is very consistent with previous vintages with one slight difference: it has a stronger acidity backbone, which is going to ensure very long aging for this wine. Entirely fermented with its own natural yeasts, the wine is unfined and unfiltered. That painstaking winemaking method protects the terroir and its delicate nuances making Chateau Potelle Chardonnay VGS quite unique.
Brilliant yellow-straw color, the attack in the mouth is fresh and crisp, very lively, with loads of apple and citrus turning very fast to the richer, deeper fruit nuances of melon and peach. The nose is extremely complex due to the length of the fermentation that allows all the elements to blend harmoniously to create the unique style of Chardonnay VGS.
The beauty of this wine stays the length in the mouth - it is extraordinarily long. The flavors fill the palate with layers of fruits and winemaking flavors. This wine is round, ample and very rich (but well balanced by the acidity) with a soft creamy texture.
