Luca G-Lot Chardonnay 2011
Availability: In stock
Brand: BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA
Winemaker's Notes - Beautiful pale-gold color with enticing aromas of lemon crème, baking spices and some notes of dulce de leche. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of tropical fruit, baked pear, and a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part New and part Old World. This wine will age well for years in a cellar.
Pairs well with most fish, lobster, crab, chicken, and even pork preparations. Particularly recommended with dishes using sauteed wild mushrooms or butter sauces.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2011 "G" Lot Chardonnay is barrel-fermented and undergoes 70% malolactic before being aged for 14 months in 30% new oak. It offers an attractive nose of brioche and almond that is well-defined and neatly envelops the oak. The palate is medium-bodied, with subtle notes of wild honey, Turkish Delight, almond and hazelnut. The finish is crisp and focused with a long tail. This is excellent." 92 Points
