MASSIVE ADVINTAGE CUSTOMER FAVOURITE NOW BACK IN STOCK
4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Generous and soothing with a lengthy smooth finish."
This generous, mouthfilling chardonnay from the South of France comes highly recommended.
For over a century Domaine de La Baume has been producing wines in the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon and that experience shows with this deliciously golden 2022 release. This is a lovely glass of wine; soft and rounded in the mouth with lovely creamy characters and some spicy oak influence rounding out the palate. It's a charmer; immediately enjoyable and flavour packed with soft acid structure and a refreshing hint of flinty minerality.
If you're looking for French Chardonnay and targeting a sub$25 spend, you'll go a long way before finding a better option that this.
This is attractively fruited and inviting on the nose showing peach, fig, nougat and subtle flinty notes, followed by a succulent palate that is beautifully rounded and creamy. It is flavoursome and very easy on the palate.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Delightfully ripe and elegantly fragrant with apricot, honeydew melon, nougat and roasted cashew aromas, it's succulent and creamy in the mouth delivering excellent weight and expansive mouthfeel. Generous and soothing with a lengthy smooth finish. At its best: now to 2026."
Luscious and fruity with a lengthy finish.
A great drop
