The 2011 Cuvee Alexandre Chardonnay was sourced from organically certified vineyards, with 50% fermented in barrel with no malolactic. Then 56% of the wine was aged for 8 months in new French oak (74%) and 2nd fill (26%) with lees-stirring twice per month. It has a light almond and coconut scented bouquet that is well defined and fresh. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity and taut citric flavors. Though I was seeking more weight and complexity on the back end at this price level, this is a commendable Chardonnay. Drink now-2016.
