*Disclaimer: I received this wine from Michel Schlumberger as a sample to participate in the BinEndsWine Twitter Taste Line.
As you all probably know, I had the pleasure of co-hosting the most recent Twitter Taste Live with Michel Schlumberger and BinEndsWine in September. We had a great line up of wines for the evening, with the first being the 2006 Michel Schlumberger La Brume Chardonnay.
On those nose I found apple butter, pear, oak, green apples, spice, pineapple, tropical fruits, citrus, sweet corn, and caramel. In the mouth I got flavors of apple butter, melon, pears, pineapple, lemon, oak, and green apple. The pear seemed to show through the most, and at times I thought I would like to describe it as pear butter (like apple butter, but made of pears) though I can’t say I know if such a thing even exists.
Overall, I thought the wine showed nice fruit, and I could see this being a really good match with a roast chicken. It retails for $28.80 and had a real cork closure.
