Knock, knock. Who's there? The best deal you've seen this month. The Novellum Chardonnay is a perfect marriage of raw materials and winemaking. From the south of France, the grapes come from 30 year old vines – an age beyond rare for the variety. Taking these concentrated grapes, the winemaker ages the wine on the skins from Viognier, imparting a honeysuckle scent to the wine. Novellum's flavors come together as creamy and snappy, delivering refreshment and satisfaction as one. Don't miss out on this sensational summer sipper winelovers!

Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from 100% Chardonnay that was aged on Viognier lees, the 2017 Vin de France Novellum boasts sensational notes of ripe citrus, white flowers, and spice, with loads of classic Catalanes salinity and obvious minerality. Aged in 15% new barrels, it’s medium-bodied, has remarkable purity, integrated acidity, and is a total steal at the price. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.Maturity: 2018 - 2022." Nov 2018

Trade Notes: "Chardonnay shows up in some remarkable places but few as breathtaking as the Roussillon where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean. From vineyards just a stone’s throw from the beach and within view of the historic Mont Canigou comes Novellum, a refined, aromatic and elegant Chardonnay that is aged in tank and neutral French barrels."
