L’Artisan Le Chardonnay 2020

Serious bottle compared to its label mates. Obviously meant to hold a visceral and tactile reference to Burgundian class. Made by Jean-Claude Mas of Arrogant Frog fame. Bottled under cork. Available here in Australia via Dan Murphy’s.

L’Artisan, Le Chardonnay, IGP Pays d’Oc, 2020

Pasul Mas l'Artisan Le Chardonnay

Ooof. Full bore Chardonnay. Jersey caramels over ripe peach, some buttered popcorn, white pepper, toasted dinner roll bread and lime marmalade. Body and breadth, savoury and mealy style with worked mid flesh and a little chew through the finish. Fruit feels a little dulled and the finish isn’t a long as desired, but will win fans for an “old school” Chardonnay approach.

RRP: $19.99
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 17.5/20 (89/100)
