Joffre

Joffre Grand Chardonnay 2009

Joffre Grand Chardonnay 2009 all about clean precise fruit with great drive and a touch of roundness in the palate

Tasting Notes

July 2012
This shows beautiful fruit purity with the lightest touch of oak that makes us think of a well made Chardonnay from southern Burgundy. This was given no malo-lactic fermentation so this has a racy edge, but extended lees aging has given this a slightly discernible touch of creaminess. Bright lifted pear and citrus tones gives freshness that brings this altogether perfectly. This has just the right amount of richness to work on its own, but the fruit purity and acidity gives cut making it perfect for all kinds of lighter food.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Argovino July 2013
Pure refinement in a bottle – there’s a restrained floral nose with hints of honeysuckle and orange blossom, then a structured wine that opens up gradually in the manner of an older French chardonnay. Darker notes of orange marmalade and burnt sesame come through beguilingly towards the end. To be savored, perhaps with a roast chicken or a delicate white fish.
