L’Ecole No. 41 | Chardonnay

The 2021 Chardonnay soothes with its sweetly seductive blend of candied apples, toffee and white flowers. It’s deeply textural with medium-bodied weight as ultra-ripe orchard fruits are nicely balanced by brisk acidity and salty mineral tones. This leaves nuances of vanilla custard balanced by a bitter twang of hazelnut while tapering off potent yet fresh. The Heritage Chardonnay presents inviting aromas of ripe pear, lemon, and green apple. Pleasant and bright in the mouth, it features a classic expression of light toast and lemon oil. Contrasting flavors of white pepper and nuances of nutmeg add interest and carry the wine through to a flavorful finish.
