Bottle Description

The Wijnkasteel, or wine castle, of Genoels-Elderen, with its 25 hectares of vineyards, is the largest wine estate in the country. With a history dating back to the Middle Ages, there is evidence that the property was one of the most important in the area due to the mineral rich soils. As unoriginal as it may be to compare Chardonnays from around the world to white Burgundies, we are going to do it anyway as we believe it is wholly appropriate in this instance. When we first tasted this and were told it was from Belgium we simply couldn't believe what we were hearing. With its subtle smokiness, thanks to the 12 months that 50% spends in oak, and the wonderful aromas of almonds, peaches, pears and slight butteriness we will personally congratulate anyone who places this in Belgium! This is a mouth-filling and round wine that has a precise acidity and long, persistent finish. Highly recommended and certainly a wine that made us see the potential in Belgium's terroir.
