2015 Grand Ardeche Chardonnay

May 3, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#17-18-PIE

I have always been a fan of the wines presented by the Louis Latour label, which is one of France's best "negociants". The Grand Ardeche is an excellent example of French Chardonnay without the exorbitant price point.

The Grand Ardeche has good color and clarity with an appealing nose full of apple, spice and citrus. The flavor is fruity, yet dry with the pronounced presence of apple, pineapple, and citrus. There is a complex spicy nature to the wine which leads to a crisp, clean finish which begs for another sip. The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 90.

We served the French Chardonnay with Shrimp Scampi, warm bread and chilled garden salad, for a delightful meal. This a beautiful Chardonnay with excellent character at a reasonable price, which should please any true Chardonnay lover, as evidenced by the accolades from the Chardonnay Queen!

price : $12 - $17

score: 90
