Our Score: 89
A good, everyday Chardonnay from Bourgogne. Balanced and yet not as powerful as many of the more expensive and world-acclaimed sub-appellations of the region like Montrachet or Mersault.
The tropical fruit at the nose is well combined with the minerality, the yellow freesia, the ripe melon and the peaches. At the palate, it is warm and persistent and crisp with a touch of sapidity. Different and fresher than a similarly-priced Napa-style Chardonnay.
Pairing: Very good with raw marinated fish. I like it also with rich white fish such as amberjack, grouper, turbot, monkfish.
Appellation: Bourgogne Blanc AOC, France
