Wine Guide by Roskachestvo (‘Russian Quality’) about Cru Lermont Chardonnay 2016

A clear light-golden wine with a straw hue. Flavour: clear and well-balanced, with notes of ripe apple, yellow fruits, and slight flowery and vanilla nuances. The flavour is bright, harmonious and easy-to-remember. Taste: clear, with lingering fruity nuances and without alien tones. A prolonged pleasant finish with a light vanilla note. A well-balanced wine. 86.9/100.

Roman Neborsky, oenologist and wine expert, about Cru Lermont Chardonnay 2012

“In my opinion, this wine is one of the symbols of contemporary Russian winemaking on the whole: nicely wrought out (which fact is proved by the number of different awards), lively, typical and complex, and – what is most important – selling at a very reasonable price, bearing in mind big production volumes. By the way, it’s an excellent pairing for pasta under creamy sauce.”
