Calmel & Joseph Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2022

Calmel & Joseph Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2022

GOLD MEDAL: Chardonnay du Monde 2023
Mundus Vini 2023
90 POINTS:  James Suckling 

Villa Blanche is stunning award-winning Chardonnay from the south of France. Floral, apple and peach notes with lovely mouth-feel and a more-ish, satisfying finish. Comfortably the least expensive wine in the Gold Medal winning category of the 50 Top Chardonnays of the World Competition!

"Elegantly pale, shimmering, limpid. In this vintage that was wetter than previous years, the aromas remain powerful. We find the same notes of apricot, vine peach and aniseed that are characteristic of our Villa Blanche Chardonnay, with the discreet fragrance of vanilla and coconut in complement. The palate is perfectly balanced, fresh, fruity and dense at the same time, thanks to harvesting in two stages to ensure ideal ripeness, and the important work of blending. Full bodied and harmonious on opening with exotic notes of mango and citrus fruit, and finishing on supremely smooth toasted notes. The 2019 vintage offers a mouth-watering touch of salinity as a final note. We have remained faithful to the typical characteristics of this wine, but with perhaps more predominant freshness in this vintage."
