Here’s a fantastic Chardonnay, and an opportunity to experience the grape in its pure and original form. From the homeland.
Miquel’s Chardonnay has the poise of an athlete and the purity of a saint. It exudes minerality with a capital M. But there’s also a twinkle in the eye. Initial bracing refreshment evolves into pleasantness and charm. Even a little richness. An amazing spectrum of experiences in a non-oaked wine. And an amazing value. Could be in all three of my white wine categories. Could be the best new white wine of the year.
Enjoy before and with a light supper.
