Wine Advocate

Lafage's 19,000-case production 2010 Novellum Chardonnay - one third barrel-fermented, and grown on cobbled and alluvial soils near the Mediterranean east of Perpignan - has, he relates, become a best-seller in Japan, Germany, and Canada as well as in the U.S. Nearly over-ripe apple and musk melon on the nose and a generously juicy, succulently sappy, lees-enriched, creamy yet somehow at the same time tart-edged palate are tinged with brown spices and hazelnut. The combination here of creaminess with refreshment and levity illustrates a virtue more usually associated with Pinot Blanc. This will prove delightfully versatile over the next 12-18 months.

Score: 89. —David Schildknecht, June 2011.
