Chateau Des Charmes 2012 Chardonnay Musqué (Niagara-on-The-Lake) Niagara Peninsula - Ontario
Availability: Direct from the winery here and LCBO stores
Production: 478 cases
Date Tasted: July 9th, 2014
Tasting Notes: One of the most aromatic Chardonnay you're likely to encounter on the Niagara Peninsula thanks to the unique qualities of the Musqué clones of the varietal. Floral notes aplenty with orange blossom, apple and candied lime aromas creating a memorable nose. Palate is not overly complex but well-balanced between its lush characters of ripe orchard fruit and the tangy texture of citrus fruit. Finish is long with a hint of lingering spice. Drink now-2015.
