Jean Leon's  Vinya Gigi Chardonnay is a single-layer wine from the beautiful Spanish DO Penedès region.  In the glass, this wine shines in a clear straw yellow with golden-greenish highlights. The complex bouquet offers an incredible variety of aromas. This Spanish white wine presents fruity aromas of ripe grapefruit, juicy nuts (pear and yellow apples) and tropical fruits - such as banana, peach and apricot. This is accompanied by vegetarian notes of meadow herbs and summer flowers. This bouquet is rounded off by subtle hints of almonds and hazelnuts. On the palate, this white wine has a fresh and lively personality with a silky melting texture. The racial acidity harmonizes perfectly with the slightly tart citrus fruit and the fine accents of oak wood. The body has a gentle fullness, melting and liveliness. The finale is wonderfully long and is accompanied by a persistent freshness with a slightly herbaceous reverberation.  Vinification of Jean Leon Chardonnay Vinya Gigi The grapes from the Vinya Gigi single layer are harvested at optimum ripeness and immediately brought to Jean Leon's wine cellar. There the grapes are gently pressed and the must is fermented with this white wine in French oak barrels. After completion of the fermentation process, this wine matures for 6 months on the fine yeast. This white wine is rounded off for a certain time on the bottle.  Food recommendation for Chardonnay Vinya Gigi Jean Leon This dry white wine from Spain is a great accompaniment to dishes with grilled or baked fish, tender poultry ragout, all kinds of quiche variations or to risotto with seafood.  Awards for Jean Leon Vinya Gigi Chardonnay James Suckling: 93 points for 2015
