Langtry Genevieve Chardonnay 2009



Sourced from the acclaimed Genevieve Vineyard in Guenoc Valley, the 2009 Chardonnay has the enticing aromas of baked apple pie, toasted marshmallow combined with hints of vanilla and caramel. The wine is rich but well balanced, with a brightness that allows for some of the tropical flavors to linger on the palate. Barrel fermentation in new barrels gave this wine richness and complexity without hiding the fruit. Tropical flavors of mango and pear persist in the palate for a long time begging another sip.

Wine EnthusiastLangtry's Genevieve Vineyard is an esteemed, estate source of Chardonnay and this wine will show you why. Golden in color with a Burgundian nose, it opens with tart apple, Calvados aromas, just a hint of pineapple followed by a great lemony midpalate, its body voluptuous yet balanced, the textures layered and bright. Aged in French oak, it's rich and complex, a surprising white from a historic producer.
