The 2010 Alpha label reveals a satin hue driven by fine, lively bubbles. The Chardonnay reveals itself first through its delicate floral nose of acacia, honeysuckle and poppy entwined with notes of orchard fruits, biscuit and toast. The wine develops lush fruit-driven weight supported by a pomelo nuance. Minerality imparts fullness, elegance and length on the palate. The final saline and chalky sensation fuses with a never-ending finish.
Scores: 94 Points Gilbert and Gaillard, 93 Points Decanter
