I don't believe this particular bottling was exported to the U.S. in 2015. Fortunately I have friends who toted one back for me from France. It was worth the journey. Where I expected a youthful, steely wine, I found instead a full-bodied, spicy, fruit-forward, and totally delicious and mature Chardonnay. Complex melange of aromas and flavors - stone fruits, crème caramel, amaretto, yeast, nutmeg. Tingling acidity keeps it energetic and engaging in the mouth. (Price estimated based on earlier vintages available in the U.S.) I wish I could afford to drink wines like this every night. - HK 2019-05-02
