2018 LA BELLE BLONDE CHARDONNAY
Medium gold. Toasty sweet vanilla, peach preserves and toasted anise greet the senses in the glass. Ripe pineapple, juicy pear and chamomile in the mouth. Notes of Dutch crumb apple pie and brown butter with savory tarragon notes compliment. With bright acidity and fine length this vintage of La Belle Blonde stays light on its feet while remaining full bodied and lush on the palate. Enjoy over the next 5 years. 18 months in 40% new French oak. 100% Wente clone. 200 cases produced.
