JCB No. 81 Chardonnay 2011
This is yet another excellent wine from the Jean-Charles Boisset California collection. It exudes wonderful varietal character with deliciously rich notes of white peach, apricot, citrus and stoney minerality. There is ample body and intensity of flavour, but it is tempered by perky acidity and that superbly cool mineral streak. Absolutely in its peak drinking window and ideally served with dishes such as herb-roasted chicken.
