Contrarian White 2018
Chardonnay Musque, Chardonnay
Visual: Bright and strong straw yellow colour with nuances of gold. Fairly heavy legs. Nose: Bouquet of floral and tropical notes with a hint of creaminess and ripe melon. Second nose yields aromas of ripe citrus and a bit of dried apricot and peach. Palate: Round, fruit-driven attack, smooth but yet fresh midpalate of ripe citrus fruit and floral aromas. Hints of brioche/bread flavours add to the fruit complexity. Final on fresh butter and lemon pie, well supported by a nice freshness and a hint of oak tannins.
