A richer styled wine (I've compared this cuvee to a Chardonnay from Mark Aubert), the 2020 Chardonnay Novellum has a medium gold hue as well as a rich, powerful bouquet of caramelized lemon, honeyed almonds, candle wax, and toasted bread. Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and balanced, this is another no brainer purchase.
Chardonnay shows up in some remarkably diverse places but few as breathtaking as the Roussillon, where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean. From vineyards, just a stone's throw from the beach and within view of the historic Mont Canigou, Eric Solomon and Jean-Marc Lafage have created Domaine Lafage Novellum Vin de France Chardonnay, a refined, aromatic, and elegant Chardonnay that is aged in tank (80%) and neutral French barrels(20%).
