Domaine Rolet Arbois Chardonnay 2015

Arbois, Jura, FranceLemon, yellow apple and fine stony spice thread through this Arbois chardonnay, sourced from 30+ vines on gray marl soils, and from 280-380m. This was fermented and aged in barrel (20 percent new), giving a slight and welcome lees pad to the core. You can feel the weight from the marl soils in the expansiveness on the palate, one that wears its 2015 vintage very well. There's a lovely grip that houses the fruit to a light popcorn finish. Simple, pure and classic Arbois chardy.Tasted: 13 April 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 34.65 consignment Producer: Domaine Rolet Père & FilsDistributors: Cru & Terroir
