|class-Chardonnay from the best part of the pressing|

|full, mild and complex, with sufficient freshness|
|great with fish or shrimps from the grill|
Beautiful, aromatic dry white wine with notes of toast, ripe apple, mango and some oak. The taste is soft, mild and round and has a persistent aftertaste.
This rich Chardonnay is made from the first and best part of the very soft pressing and yeast in oak casks, so that the wood influence is clearly present. After two months of bâtonnage, the wine is aged for a total of ten months on the 'lie' in the same barrels.
The result is a very nice, dry Chardonnay with notes of toast, ripe apple, mango and some oak. The seductive, luxurious and mild taste makes the wine ideal to drink just like that, or to combine with beautiful dishes such as scallops Saint Jacques, turbot or poultry. Richer than a white Burgundy, but not as unwieldy as many New World Chardonnay.
De Grote Hamersma 2019: 8.5 | Mango, passion fruit, pineapple, roasted nuts and lemon cream
Does its best and includes mango, passion fruit, pineapple, roasted nuts and lemon cream. Destination reached. Don't choke. The wine is too good for that.
Hubrecht Duijker - August 2018: Best in the Test | Mild vanilla notes, a subtle smokiness
You could call it a Burgundian, perhaps California-styled Chardonnay. At Domaine l'Arjolle it was fermented in oak barrels and then aged for ten months. Roast aromas are therefore clearly present in smell and taste, together with by definition mild vanilla notes, a subtle smokiness and very faint milk chocolate dipped in caramel, as well as a soft, civilized spiciness. Turkey, chicken, veal, this Chardonnay deserves a place with these types of dishes.
