Darioush – Chardonnay 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers a small richness as well as a slight concentration. It reveals notes of quince, crushed peach and small notes of kumquat, flowers associated with fine hints of white fruits as well as an imperceptible toasted hint. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, very slightly tight and offers an acid frame, a small tension, freshness, fat (thanks to bâtonnage) as well as a slight unctuosity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed vine peach, quince and small notes of vanilla associated with small / slight touches of white fruits, kumquat, a discreet hint of tangerine as well as discreet toasted hints and an imperceptible hint of almond (in the background).
