    Another knockout release from this knockout producer, Jean Marc Lafage punches at a heavyweight class but for a featherweight price. This Chardonnay, aged for a short period on some Viognier lees for a little aromatic boost, has wonderful notes of golden delicious apples, peaches and white flowers. It has a creamy texture that leads you towards buttery but never pushes you over the cliff. A delight through and through that won't put you down for the count.

    Novellum is always a runaway hit for us, but the newly released 2017 stands out as even better than the last vintage! Less tropical than before, this year crunchy pear and golden apple fruit take center stage. While oak is definitely there, it feels better-integrated, and adds texture through to the finish. Like most Lafage wines, Novellum isn’t subtle, but it if balanced, and if you’re looking for a showy, creamy Chardonnay at a bargain price, this is it.

    As an unrepentant Chardonnay enthusiast, I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I enjoyed this wine. For a mere $10 you get a wine that truly captures the charm of Chardonnay. It has plenty of bright apple and pear on the nose. The palate is greeted by more fresh fruit but eventually, the creamy nature of the wine takes over. There’s enough acidity to keep it bright and fresh. This is a perfect mid-week wine that can be enjoyed on its own or with well-prepared simple dishes.

    This well-priced Chardonnay is beloved by a wide cross-section of customers as it sees only a kiss of new oak and delivers a round, creamy texture, sumptuous fruit and perfectly integrated acidity. It's great on its own or with food and the flavors and freshness keep you coming back for more. An impressive and affordable white that exceeds expectation.
