    Winemaker's Notes:

    Novellum is a custom cuvee of 100% Chardonnay grown and made by Jean Marc and Eliane Lafage for Eric Solomon. Year after year, the Novellum Chardonnay is lauded for being one of the best Chardonnay values. Because the wine is un-oaked, it is a terrific Chardonnay which marries quite well with food.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.
