Tasting:

    Chilled before opening. Clear, oat straw color. Light citrus aroma with hints of ripe apple and pineapple. Tart acidic mouthfeel, medium body and 150-grit texture. Powerful tart lime and lemon flavors with a slowly emerging apple and mineral taste. Zippy acidity and a long bitter finish that had lots of lemon zest. Excellent paired with the salmon and “not bad” sipping without food after the dinner. Light bouquet, light on flavor, strong on tartness; but a bright and lively Chardonnay without a speck of oak. A good value everyday Pays d’Oc Chardonnay.
