Azienda Agricola Giuseppe Cortese Chardonnay 2010

I never really buy Chardonnay as I prefer to buy their indiginous vareities however this was rather nice. Chardonnay just loves a good aspect and a hill side which makes Langhe a potenial ideal area for the variety. Furthermore the variety loves to be paired with chickens and truffles which is a perfect as the area is renowned for truffles.

This is not what I was expecting as there is a flintiness mixed with figs and fennel before a bit of fruit finds its way into the picture. The aromas mirror the palate to a tee with the good length of flavours easily being able to follow. While the weight is only medium bodied it fits perfectly into the Chablis was of thinking.
