2012DeForvilleChard2012 De Forville Chardonnay “Ca’ dell Buc” Piedmonte, Italy.
This light to medium bodied elegant Chardonnay is a real class act, De Forville has crafted a real polished and delicious wine, hailing from the Langhe in Italy’s Piedmonte region, close to Asti and the Barbaresco zone. The 2012 Ca’ dell Buc is beautiful effort with a leading nose of white flowers, mineral tones and lemony citrus, before opening up to a palate of delicate pear, apple and citrus fruits with wet stones, golden fig, peach and a whiff of baking spices. This Chardonnay is soft and round in the mouth, but still has vibrancy and a steely edge, everything folds together very well and makes for a pleasing experience, drink over the next 3 to 5 years.
