2018 James Suckling 93

  PIEMONTE CHARDONNAY FOSCHE 2018 Score 93   Lots of butterscotch and yoghurt character here, in addition to cloves, but plenty of attractive dried peach and citrus fruit behind that. Fullbodied and serious with lots of oiliness and density on the palate, but enough acidity to carry this through to a taut finish (June 2019)
