Jean Leon Vinya Gigi Chardonnay is a luxurious Spanish wine, originating from Penedes, Spain. This rich, golden-hued white wine offers splendid layers of vanilla, ripe pear, and tropical fruits on the nose, smoothly transitioning into a palate filled with citrus, nutty oak, and buttery hints. Grown exclusively in the Vinya Gigi vineyard and aged in French oak barrels, it boasts a well-rounded, creamy texture complemented with a pleasing freshness from its crisp acidity. A wine that is perfect for special occasions, it partners well with seafood or white meats. Vinya Gigi embodies the elegance and timeless sophistication of the Jean Leon winery.
Bright, clean straw yellow in colour. A powerfully aromatic nose, combining primary aromas of pineapple and peach with touches of spiced and lactic notes and final hints of Mediterranean flowers. A persistent palate thanks to its good acidic balance, with a long, elegant mid-palate and a balanced, lush finish.
