Giaconda Nantua Les Deux

Is this the poor man's Giaconda? Well, the price has gone up a bit, so I don't know about that. However, if you don't want to shell out $100 plus for the Chardonnay, this could be an attractive alternative.

Yesterday I had the 2005 Nantua Les Deux. It means it is made up of the two varieties of Chardonnay and Colombard. The wine expresses complex and exotic fruit flavours, in particular Guava, it is of the 'fatter' style, tasting of honey and sweets and has a nice finish, although I would have liked a bit more acidity at the end.

The wine drinks well right now, but would go for 2-3 more years.
