Description

Details

According to Wine Advocate - "The silken-textured Lafage 2012 Novellum Chardonnay is generously juicy if rather simply apply, its hints of spice, caramel and vanilla from barrel complimentary, and its finish satisfyingly soothing if equivocal and without intrigue..."

Winemakers Notes - "Novellum is a custom cuvee of Chardonnay grown and made by Jean Marc and Eliane Lafage for Eric Solomon. The Latin name "Novellum" echoes "Nouveau" ("new"), and the recent vintage suggests a wine that saw little delay between the vineyard and the bottle. The grapes experience cold maceration with only first pressing. The majority of the wine, 70%, is aged in stainless steel. To achieve the perfect balance of fresh acidity, ripe fruit and a touch of minerality 30% of the wine is aged briefly for 2 months in one - year old barrels. But the real uniqueness in this wine comes from its aging method: it is aged on the "lees" of previously fermented Viognier for three months, imparting a luscious floral character that's different from just about any Chardonnay you've tasted."
