Chilled before drinking. Clear, almost colorless. Very strong citrus aroma with lesser amounts of Granny Smith apple and ripe honeydew melon. Intense and a little creamy mouthfeel, solid medium body and a 100-grit texture. Powerful tart lemon, apple and Florida grapefruit flavors with a slight medicinal taste in the background. Gobs of bright acidity and a long very tart fruity finish. Well, we haven’t done well with Louis Jadot entry level wines purchased from the grocery store; however, this Chardonnay has lifted the brand. It had a distinctive bouquet and was dominated by acidity, but we both commented that we were drinking wine made with Chardonnay grapes. That may sound like a strange statement; however we’ve found at this price point it’s not uncommon to not have the slightest idea what grape the wine was made from!!! Even though we both thought there was way to much grapefruit taste we’re going to recommend it at this price point as a “Not Bad” grocery store Chardonnay.
