Domaine LaFage Novellum Chardonnay 2015
Bremer's March 2017 Staff Pick
Bremer’s March staff pick has been chosen by co-owner, Tim Bremer. He has an extensive background in the wine industry and a great love for wine. When he is not busy at work in the office or helping a customer find the perfect wine, he is probably out on the golf course enjoying the weather. Tim certainly loves a great French wine and when he tried Novellum Chardonnay, he was not disappointed. It is a great wine to enjoy as the weather begins to warm up. If his recommendation alone isn't enough to convince you... it's also rated 90 pts by Wine Advocate! So what are you waiting for? Stop by and pick up your bottle today.
Wine AdvocateA custom cuvee created by importer Eric Solomon, the 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes Novellum is a smokin' value that's made from 100% Chardonnay that spent three months in tank (on Viognier lees) followed by three months in barrel. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it offers lots of orchard fruits, white peach, honeysuckle and a hint of vanilla to go with a medium to full-bodied, crisp, yet still textured and mouth-filling style on the palate. You can't go wrong at the price and this is a terrific wine to enjoy over the coming year or two.
