Tasting Notes: The best value in Chardonnay you can find. Aging on Viognier lees gives this wine body without the use of oak, so it meets the well-balanced look that touches every side of Chardonnay drinkers. It is near impossible to find value in Chardonnay that is not one-noted, and Novellum Chardonnay’s complex fruit and mineral tinged flavors keep it away from that. To boot, you are drinking Chardonnay from Roussillon, France, which is an anomaly in its own right. This wine delivers each vintage and the 2014 is no slouch.
