Les Dolomies, Chardonnay 'Les Combes' 2018
This really is very delicious. Something for everyone along the scale of top-notch Chardonnay. Les Dolomies seem to kick goals with everything they touch, top maker. Effortless to drink, loads of briny, sea air like feeling, let's call it freshness, allied to some tangy citrus and ripe green apple like acidity. Enough flesh, more than enough drive. This is a cracker.
