Jeb Dunnuck is generally regarded as a top wine critic, especially when it comes to Rhone varietals. Here’s what he had to say about the 2020 Novellum Chardonnay: “A richer styled wine (I've compared this cuvée to a Chardonnay from Mark Aubert[which sells for $90+ per bottle), the 2020 Novellum has a medium gold hue as well as a rich, powerful bouquet of caramelized lemon, honeyed almonds, candle wax, and toasted bread. Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and balanced, this is another no brainer purchase.” Dunnuck rated the wine at an outstandingly remarkable 94 points. More remarkable still is the price: sub $12 from more than just one retailer. (Use Wine Searcher or Google $ to find the best price. DO NOT wait until warmer weather arrives. It likely will not be available as a bargain wine.)
