Chardonnay on Snooth

  • Domaine du Chalet Pouilly Saint-Véran 2016

    Snoothrank:

    With an inviting nose of candy or icing sugar sprinkled over gooseberry - or ... the entry is very Burgundian Chardonnay with more or less neutral white fruit and stewed apple. There is some depth to the palate and a lingering finish. Very good value for a neighbour of Pouilly-Fuisse. 8 Read More

  • Domaine Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Pouilly Fuisse is a wonderful wine for the price, but is still a tad dear. It has a good Chardonnay nose and entry (austere notes of yellow flower, e.g.).A fine PF. 89-90. Read More

  • Domaine Bousquet Chardonnay Tupungato Valley 2018

    Snoothrank:

    Cool peach and melon aromas that show a bit of floral character and a bit of lemon. Tart citrus palate of lemon and grapefruit, a mixture of pith and zest and a melon finish. A bit creamy and perfumed but mostly tingles on the palate with acidity and spice. Read More

  • I've had two bottles explode (glass tops) when opening with a proper corkscrew. Glass everywhere and cuts. What's the story here?
