Chardonnay Ahn Vogelsang 2021
Glossy Citrus & Green Apple
This bright and glossy Chardonnay comes from the first wine family to plant the green-skinned French grape in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Uncover intense but refreshing flavors of fresh citrus, green apple, and white peach beneath a discreet layer of oak and spice.
We love this bottle is a fresh, mineral alternative to the buttery, oak-heavy Chardonnays that many avoid.
The origins of Maison Viticole Schmit-Fohl date back to 1792, precisely three years after the start of the French Revolution. Unlike France’s monarchy, however, the wine estate, now one of Luxembourg’s oldest, has continued into the 21st century.
