Notes: Often the most structured Chardonnay in the Goisot lineup with an almost talcum texture. It is both rich AND racy, concentrated and lythe...a total WOW wine. We agree with Allen Meadows's assessment that "no one but no one delivers more quality for the price than Goisot. The quality is flat out amazing particularly given the modest appellations with which he works."
