" A custom cuvee by importer Eric Solomon and a blend of 100% Chardonnay that comes from two separate vineyards, this Cotes Catalanes is aged three months (on Viognier lees) in a combination of Burgundy barrels and stainless steel. Exotic and perfumed, with ample white peach, creme, brioche and subtle nuttiness, it flows onto the palate with a medium to full-bodied, layered and beautifully detailed texture that shows bright acidity and fantastic purity of fruit. An incredible effort that has both richness and freshness, it should continue to thrill for another handful of years. "

European CellarsSomeone once made an unflattering comparison between Chardonnay and a part of one's anatomy best left unmentioned, saying "everyone's got one, no one wants to hear about yours." Sadly, Chardonnay is a victim of its own success and frequently a punch line, despite being one of the most highly esteemed wines in its guise of Grand Cru Chablis or Montrachet. We are not claiming that Novellum is like these auspicious wines, but we will argue that for its price you can hardly find better. The project is from the Roussillon, where husband and wife team of Domaine Lafage fame, Jean-Marc and Eliane Lafage, have some Chardonnay planted near the Mediterranean that makes a remarkably complex and mineral version of the variety. A small percentage is aged in barrel – usually less than 30%. The remainder of the wine is aged in tank on the lees of Viognier. It remains one of the best values in Chardonnay that you can find.

Smoothe, relatively deep flavor, nice finish. Amazing for such an inexpensive Chard. I want another case.

Nice Chardonnay

"I will buy this chardonnay again, it impressed me by how long it lingered. I feel you can have it with a meal or on its own. I will buy this wine again. I am going to look for Eric Solomon wines now."

Kevin

Good, some previous vintages are superior in my opinion
