Burgundy is renowned for its expressive, well-balanced single-varietal wines, and this one is no exception. The Bel-Air Bourgogne Chardonnay is a proper white Burgundy representing excellent value for your money.
The wine is a pale lemon colour and has a fruit-forward nose of fresh apple, peach, and almond. Mid-weight on the palate with crisp acidity and flavours of lemon, peach, apricot, and a touch of toasty vanilla, this is a classic expression of Chardonnay from the region that sets the benchmark for the grape.
“Clear, light yellow. Endearing fruity nose with a smattering of white peach, apricot and almond. The palate is crunchy, balanced and boasts lovely freshness which showcases aroma over substantial length. Hint of menthol on the finish. Extremely delightful.”
