Food Pairings for Argot Wines Old Habits Chardonnay Bennett Valley
Premier Cru Burgundy meets classic California. Citrus hits the nose first but then gives way to richer fruits like figs and bruleed apples. The palette is weighty but not flabby or fat. There's marzipan golden apple, stone fruit, and Challa bread. Just a lovely wine.
Sitting in the glass, Old Habits presents a brilliant clarity and the rich, golden hue of the pedigreed wines from Burgundy’s Meursault region--whose tradition deeply informs our style of winemaking for Chardonnay. Currently expressing a tight, linear nose which unravels with air to express a bouquet dominated by stone fruits of nectarine and white peach, accented by citrus elements hinting of nectarine, and notes of crème brûlée. Once in the mouth, this Chardonnay announces its cool-climate upbringing with a zinging acidity that precedes a cascade of flavors on the palate—lemon curd, caramelized orange rinds, almond paste and pie crust to name a few. As the fruit recedes and the finish lingers on the back of the palate, patisserie notes of brioche and lemon tart build in the mouth, accented with detectable hints of freshly-cured vanilla bean.
Aged 20 months in French Oak.
