Brun’s 2010 Beaujolais Chardonnay Classic once again offers sensational value and a distinctively delicious personality such as you won’t find in 98% or more of Chardonnay grown anywhere in the world. A bright yet luscious meld of melons, pineapple, lemon, and apple seems suffused with shrimp shell reduction and is laced with mouthwatering salinity that dares you to resist the next sip. The cut and invigoration will keep you on your toes yet remain allied to a subtle sense of creaminess; whilst a multiplicity of mineral shadings leaves you shaking your head as you repeatedly raise your wrist. Savor this beauty over the next 2–3 years.

Pale straw. Citrus, pear and white flowers on the nose, along with an exotic note of candied anise. Densely packed and lively, offering intense orchard fruit flavors underscored by chalky minerals. Closes tangy and persistent, leaving a floral note behind.
