Domaine du Tariquet Chardonnay!
This is the second bottle of wine that Domaine du Tariquet sent me, and as it was seasonably warm this weekend, I thought, let’s break out a second bottle. Again, I served it to my two favorite wine-appreciators.
Tasting notes from my dad:
A nice, crisp, green apple floral scent with light oak overtures. Very clean on the palate with a slight buttery mouthfeel. Not overdone. There was a flowery, vanilla taste with a light smokiness on the finish.
Tasting notes from my ma:
Very light and delicate green apple on the nose. Detected a hint of grapefruit. No malolactic. Crisp and clean, light and smooth. Hint of sweetness, but the green apple balances it nicely. Noted a touch of minerality on the finish; very smooth. By the nose I wouldn’t pick this to be a Chardonnay. The taste is classic. It’s an approachable, drinkable wine.
Did I like it? Yes! It tasted great with dinner, and by itself.
To find Domaine du Tariquet wines in your area, check out their distributors, or contact your local wine seller. I again suggest you do, as this Chardonnay was lovely.
