Wine Review: This very nice French Chardonnay from the Maconnaise area of Burgundy is a pretty yellow with a slight greenish tinge in the glass. On the nose, I picked up aromas of lemon, orange blossom, light oak and green hay. It is light to medium bodied and bit rustic with bright acidity. Its flavors are a slightly earthy green apple and lemon rind with integrated minerality. It has a very pleasant long finish with citrus, spice and hazelnut notes. A crisp skinned garlic roast chicken would be quite enjoyable with this wine. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: From two mature vineyards in La Roche Vineuse, this is a classic white Burgundy with a nose of lemon sorbet, tangerine zest with nuances of wild honey. The textured mid-palate shows flavors of lightly grilled citrus and stone fruit while a long line of vibrant acidity enlivens the finish.

Organic status: not organic
