Woodsmoke, flint and a textured midpalate reminiscent of crushed velvet, shot through with zesty lemon, make this a delicious, stylish Chardonnay, known in these parts as Morillon. This vintage right still fresh as a daisy and shows the aging potential of this grape that thrives beautifully in numerous places. Right here it benefits from the combination of brilliant sunshine and cool, continental nights. Ripeness and tension in unison.

She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
