Combe Rocher Reserve Chardonnay 2020

Imported by Master of Wine Steve Bennett and scoring 90/100 from Cam Douglas MS, the Combe Rocher Reserve Chardonnay is one of the best value French wines we've had to date.

Pale, bright gold in colour with enticing aromas of vanilla, lime blossom, lemon curd and pear. The palate is harmonious, with a creamy mouthfeel. This gorgeous Chardonnay ends with a clean, bracing acidity, carrying the flavours to a lingering finish.

90/100, Cam Douglas MS, "A simple tasty example of Chardonnay with clean, fresh aromas and flavours of apple and citrus, some white fleshed stone fruits and a fine earthy mineral quality. Satin texture with a youthful acid line, calm and balanced use of oak and an overall fresh varietal appeal. Balanced and ready for drinking from 2021 through end of summer 2024."

5 Stars, 93/100, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "This a splendidly appealing modern expression, showing summer peach, grapefruit, subtle vanilla, cashew and popcorn notes on the nose, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that’s ripe and creamy. Well balanced and flavoursome with elegance as well as generosity. At its best: now to 2025."
