"Novellum is made in the Roussillon, where Jean-Marc and Eliane Lafage have some Chardonnay planted near the Mediterranean that makes a remarkably complex and mineral version of the variety. There is no botrytis here so we resort to a small percentage in barrel – usually less than 20%. The remainder of the wine is aged in tank on the lees of Viognier. It remains one of the best values in Chardonnay that you can find." —importer

Wine Anthology review:
Novellum is 100% Chardonnay from vines that are at least 30 years old in the Côtes Catalanes region of the Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France. This 2015 is positively bursting with fresh fruit character, bringing aromas of ripe honeydew melon, sweet orange, and warm honey. With a third of the wine aged in French oak for three months, you get just enough of a vanilla edge to cut through the fruit without an excess of wood. The depth and texture here is that of a wine well beyond Novellum's extremely friendly price!
"A custom cuvee created by importer Eric Solomon, the 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes Novellum is a smokin’ value that’s made from 100% Chardonnay that spent three months in tank (on Viognier lees) followed by three months in barrel. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it offers lots of orchard fruits, white peach, honeysuckle and a hint of vanilla to go with a medium to full-bodied, crisp, yet still textured and mouth-filling style on the palate. You can’t go wrong at the price and this is a terrific wine to enjoy over the coming year or two." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
