Puy Redon Chardonnay, 2013

Wow.  Wow, wow, wow.

 

Is it Olivier LeFlaive?  No.  No, it’s not Hospice de Beaune.  It’s from Bergerac, a region you might be hard pressed to locate on a map.  You’ll want to visit after half a bottle.  What balance.  What sensational balance.  Honestly, this was just a wine of exceptional craftsmanship, it didn’t veer towards the barrel or overpower with acidity or accidentally find itself in corner knee deep in butterscotch.  It was honed or finessed or managed to a brutal simplicity, toasty nuts, wild honey, tropical blossoms.  Just a treat.  An absolute treat.  One of the reasons we drink so much different wine is to discover something like this.  Did I say wow?

 

Price: Gifted.  Couldn’t source a local provider but it retails in other provinces near the $50 mark and that would be the 2015.

 

Market Liquidity: Nadia Comenici in a bottle.
