Cave De Lugny, White Burgundy Chardonnay, France (2011)

To the eye, this burgundy Chardonnay is what one would expect: light golden hues with a look of a light syrup. The nose is a contrast to the soft appearance of the tipple in the glass, with a sharp zesty bite that invites a sip.

On first tasting, this wine gives a lime hit with a hint of unripened pear. This unfolds into a warming heart of citrus flavours that give one the comfortable feeling of closeness that a familiarity brings. That is not to say that this wine is run of the mill, but it does have all of the characteristics that one would want from a Chardonnay. It leaves you with a peachy air on the palate, a refreshing change from some Chardonnays that leave behind a clagging unwanted sharpness.

Overall, this is a welcome addition to my cellar, and I would heartily recommend it to anyone that is looking for an on-the-ball Chardonnay experience.

Keep on drinkin'...
