Domaine Leseurre “Unoaked" Chardonnay 2014: $18 Fair+

The Domaine Leseurre Unoaked “Cuvée Classique” Chardonnay (Finger Lakes, NY) 2014 $18 [Fair+] is a lightweight wine, a bit too sweet, with so-so balance.

Pale lemon in color, light aromas of lemon cream, wax, bitter juniper berry, and chalky mineral are not especially attractive.  Light to medium bodied, off-dry to medium dry, the Leseurre has a piquant mouth feel and so-so balance.  Flavors of apple, lemon cream, a bitter note and mineral are light in intensity.  The finish is rather unbalanced, bitter and cloying, with average length.  May 2016
