Wine Review: A delicious, golden yellow, French Chardonnay from Burgundy! On the nose it is quite intense with wet stone, apple, light lemon, and peach yogurt aromas. On the palate, it has a wonderful texture, with a medium-plus body and moderate acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, fresh and crisp. There are flavors of pear, caramelized lemon, chalky minerality and green apple. I also detected a touch of spice in the mid-palate. The finish is dry and mineral driven. I would pair this very nice Chard with Creamy Chicken Vol-au-Vent. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Light yellow color, clear, green undertones. Expressive and fine. Fine smoky and calcareous notes combined with hints of fresh citrus fruits and pears. Fresh and powerful. A mouth structured by its terroir. Menthol dominates first, followed by notes of pears picked at maturity. The white peach then presents itself with aromas of white flowers. The finish is long and fresh. Pair with poultry in a cream sauce, veal with chanterelles or with Epoisses cheese.
