2012 Heytesbury Chardonnay, Vasse Felix

To go along assorted shellfish yesterday I opened this youngster. I drank the 2009 a while back.

2012 Heytesbury Chardonnay, Vasse Felix
A young, upfront yet focused nose with notes of sweet/sour lemons, dried papaya, milk chocolate fudge and a lot of cap gun smoke. There is a lot of interesting things going on here, although its still very young. Lots of sweet minerals.
The taste is young, tight and concentrated with notes of lemon candy, flint, dried tropical fruits and dry fudge. A very fine acidity characterizes the long, intense finish. Very, very good. This need a couple of years in the cellar to really unfold. A serious Chardonnay.
92p   (tasted 2015/02)
