Labet 2017 Les Varrons ChardonnayIn Fine Spirits
Wine made with old style artisanal methods
The Chardonnay Les Varrons by Domaine Labet is a French white wine from Jura, aged for 18 months in used barriques. It has a golden yellow garment of great brilliance and releases hints of yellow peach and mango, pineapple, and vanilla pod, with intense flavors of broom (honey/rose, hay like herbaceous note). On the palate it is refreshing and energetic and reveals a surprising salinity, along with an overall softness, from the finish of dried fruit.
