Luc Pirlet Chardonnay les Barriques 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Do you like Chardonnay? Are you sick and tired of the all-to-common, mega-buttery, oak bomb style? Do you like a more refreshing and fruit-forward Chardonnay? Are flavors of grapefruit, tropical fruits and honeysuckle appealing to you? Do wines with a great balance of fruit, oak and acidity spark your interest? Do you like to drink Chardonnay with grilled Mahi Mahi and roasted root vegetables? Yeah, me too.

A brilliant gold color, with complex floral notes allied to citrus/grapefruit aromas and Mirabelle plums on the nose, leading to round, generous flavors with good freshness. Serve with shellfish or poultry.

Apples and buttered pears are the main focus of this delicious wine. Medium-gold in color. The barriques used to age this Chardonnay impart just the right amount of spice and sense of weight.

Wet stone and scents of citrus zest are apparent right away in this unoaked Chardonnay. Flavors of fresh grapefruit and lemon twist lie on a medium-bodied frame as the wine finishes with a repeating stony note. Serve with lemon-herb chicken.
