Product Description

The Scorpo Eocene Chardonnay is the first ever reserve style wine from Paul Scorpo. Eocene is the geological period during which the vineyard’s soils were originally formed many millennia ago. There was only 70 dozen of the 2010 produced. So what is it like? Well if you close your eyes you’d have one foot in Meursault and one in the Mornington. It looks like very, very good modern Chardonnay from either region really. Fairly tight on the nose it offers a less fruit driven profile of yellow florals, lovely flinty mineral note, and subtle grapefruit and lemon fruits. Oak is invisible. The palate is very fine with the natural nervosity of great young Chardonnay, rather than the stripped, compacted profile of a lot of modern Aussie Chardonnays trying too hard. It has concentrated flavours of grapefruit, lemon curd and savoury white spices with a hint of sparkling minerality and the flint again. At half the price of good village white Burgundy this is a great value.
