This wine differs from the other Chardonnay in that the grapes are selected even more carefully, the special barrels used are of top quality, and the wine is aged for 10 months. This is a more mature wine, suitable for long ageing and drinking in the next 4 or 5 years.

Its personality is clearly shown by its elegant and pleasantly aromatic finish.
