Winemaker's Notes

Valle d'Aosta Chardonnay is a lovely yellow. The nose is delicately floral with hints of banana and a bit of plum. On the palate, the wine is soft, fruity and mineral. This Chardonnay from this region is grown with excellent results, giving a wine with exuberant fruit flavor, combined with a pure expression of the "terroir" of the mountain.

Pair with appetizers, main dishes, flans, fish, red and white meat, and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Chardonnay is gorgeous in this vintage. Clean, mineral notes frame a core of expressive white stone fruits, lemon and pears in an energetic style of Chardonnay that is immensely appealing. The 2010 impresses for its class and elegance, two qualities it has in spades. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018."
