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'...

  1. Cripes madam! This Mellifluous inebriant became quite the pernicious device in my evenings shinnanigans this weekend. My wife has banned this Particular distillation from the home on account of my man banger popping out in front of the mother n law. Familiarity indeed Jiiy x
