He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, light green/lemon yellow color. Light melon aroma. Smooth, slightly crisp mouth-feel; lots of flavor…tropical fruit, melon, green apple and citrus taste with a very long finish that carries the nice acidity on and on. WOW, a great Chardonnay that’s lean, delicate and flavorful. GREAT pairing with the sautéed peppers & onions and grilled chicken. A bargain Chardonnay that was perfect for a lite summer dinner.
She said: Light yellow-green color, clear, numerous fast moving legs. Light citrus aroma was followed by a citrus flavor and smooth light mellow mouth feel. The finish was long and tasty. Delicious with the dinner, especially the chicken, the wine was very refreshing which was just the right thing on a hot, humid, summer night on the patio. At $14 it is a bargain wine and I would recommend it and buy it again in a flash.!Comments: Learn more about the Eric Chevalier and his wines.
