Sur-lie aged for more than two years in French oak, Bel Lago’s reserve Chardonnay is a decadent expression of this noble grape. Straightaway, this small-batch wine expresses its extended oak aging with scents of vanilla bean, cream and chai. With fittingly crisp acidity, lemon zest, mango, apricot and banana notes provide balance for the leesy, barrel-aged character. Fully integrated French oak raises a nuanced flavor profile of brioche, caramel and licorice root. Already beautifully aged, this wine will continue to cellar for years to come.
