Brilliant and green gold color. Complex and subtle, aromas of quince, walnut, honey, ginger, acacia with a hint of linden-tree. Frank attack, without aggressiveness, final of almond, very elegant and good length.

Gorgeous from the start, this bursts with a mix of peach, mango, orange and melon fruit, while acacia, orange blossom and singed macadamia nut notes fill in the background. A lovely mineral edge frames the finish. Shows power and grace. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases imported.

This is the most impressive Chante-Alouette I can recall, boasting layers of honeyed pineapple fruit, the barest hint of fresh, just-golden toastiness and notes of gingered apricot. It's full bodied and lush on the palate, ending long and mouthwatering. It should drink well into 2015, but expect it to close up only to re-emerge between 2020 and 2030.
