MerSoleil – Chardonnay Reserve 2016 – Santa Lucia Highlandes – California

The nose is fruity and offers concentration, a small freshness as well as a very fine fleshiness. It reveals notes of lemon paste, tangerine and small notes of flat peach associated with discreet hints of minerality and lemon flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a slight mineral frame as well as a slight unctuosity. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of quince, ripe lemon and small notes of peach combined with slight hints of mirabelle plum, flowers as well as a discreet hint of zest, apple and very discreet hints of minerality and an imperceptible toasted touch on the finish.
