le Chardonnay Domaine de Baron’arques 2013

DESCRIPTION

A resplendent lemon yellow, the wine has an elegant and complex nose with intense apricot and pineapple aromas. After airing it develops notes of verbena, lime blossom, and mint. The palate is full bodied, bright, fresh and harmonious; a balanced and expressive mid-palate reveals spicy cardamom flavors with notes of vanilla and toast.  Delicate floral and citrus notes lead to a lingering finish with a lasting freshness.
