Clos du Val – Estate Chardonnay 2015 – Carneros, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, fresh and offers a slight concentration as well as richness. It reveals notes of ripe apple, ripe peach and slight touches of ripe lemon combined with discreet hints of crunchy brugnon. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful freshness, minerality, an acid frame, gourmandise, a slight depthness as well as a slight intensity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy peach, green apple and slight / subtle touches of quince associated with a touch of exotic fruits as well as a subtle / imperceptible hint of zests (in the background). Good length. There are subtle / discreet touches of toasted oak / vanilla on the aftertaste.
