The 2015 Le Pich Chardonnay offers up a pale golden color. On the nose you’ll be greeted by notes of banana, white peach, vanilla and piecrust. On the palate, this wine is rather rich and creamy in mouthfeel leading to lush flavors of white stone fruits, fresh citrus and baking spices. Very harmonious this wine delivers for the price. It has a long and clean finish. Sadly, only 250 cases were produced!
