Nice Chardonnay a little more 'toasty' on the back than I wanted...but I do want to try this again
External Reviews for Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay
This elegant Chardonnay is delicately perfumed with hints of white flower and yellow fruit, yet on the palate it becomes assertive, with a round, full mouthfeel and a long, lovely finish.
90 Points - Wine Spectator"A ripe, juicy, flattering style, with pear, apple and fig fruit framed by nicely integrated piecrust and brioche notes. The long finish lets a hazelnut hint chime in. Drink now."
91 Points - Wine Spectator"Very stylish, with nice underlying richness as the suave toast melds into the pear tartine, Jonagold apple and floral notes. Long, creamy finish has nice lingering minerality. Drink now through 2010."
"Casa Lapostolle Chardonnay Cuvee Alexandre 2008 has bright light yellow with subtle lime notes. It is elegant aromas of sweet citrus fruit
