Gold colour with a medium intensity
Pronounced aromas of dry apricots, glazed pear with butter and almond undertones. On the palate, this Chardonnay is full body with a round texture and firm acidity. Retronasal flavours bring to mind aromas of coconut cream, nectarines and roasted hazelnuts. The acidity is quite firm and the wine should continue its development for a further decade. Paired well with haddock in a lemon butter tarragon sauce. Price: Around $50-60 CAD in the Quebec market
