92/4.5 Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"This is beautifully fruited and elegantly complex on the nose showing apricot, mango, citrus and nougat characters. It's equally appealing on the palate with excellent mid-palate weight and fruit intensity, while remaining refined and lingering. Well proportioned and elegant. At its best: now to 2022."
A stunningly complex single vineyard Chardonnay from the sunny south of France. Complex and intense aromas of citrus fruits, peach and candied fruit mingle with vanilla and oaky notes. A generous and harmonious palate of exceptional volume and smoothness. The oak is discernible, without masking the delicate floral and bright fruit.
The historic estate of Mas de la Tour is in the beautiful countryside east of Beziers, run by the third generation of three Bonfils brothers.
If you love Chardonnay be prepared to be blown away by this little beauty!
