Duckhorn Vineyards – Chardonnay 2013 – Napa Valley

Duckhorn Vineyards – Chardonnay 2013 – Napa Valley

The nose is fine, quite elegant and offers a few warm notes. It reveals notes of fresh fruit (peach …) and exotic fruits associated with discreet notes of citrus (in the background) and a discreet note of caramelized hazelnut / almond. The palate is fruity, mineral, nicely fat, harmonious and quite elegant. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of pear and nectarine associated with touches of lychee, a few notes of pineapple (in the background) as well as slight woody notes that bring roundness and structure. Good length.
