Chateau Des Charmes 2013 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay - 86pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here and LCBO stores
Cost: $13.95 (including taxes)
Production: 2511 cases
Date Tasted: July 14th, 2015
Tasting Notes: This is an easy-going, barrel fermented Chardonnay from the Niagara Peninsula, priced well at under $15 and offering a nice combination of pear, apple and citrus fruit and oak-influenced characters of vanilla, butter and spice. Not overly complex, but a solid expression of classic Chardonnay orchard fruit with some added depth coming from a light vein of minerals on both the nose and palate. Drink now-2017.
