When it comes to Chardonnay, France is the benchmark. The Villa Blanche from Calmel & Joseph comes across softly oaky with a harmonious finish and an amazing freshness. The aromas are particularly expressive, with stone fruits, apricot and peach. It is incredibly well balanced in the mouth, fresh, fruity and round, with a delicious minerality which is the signature of this wine. It also finished in the top ten of more than 700 Chardonnays in France at the Meilleur Chardonnay Du Monde competition.
