Yellow apple, pear, white peach, brisk lemon/lime and chalky mineral scents are enticing. Clean and fresh on the palate; mineral driven with hints of fresh cream joining the scent flavors. Finishes dry with vanilla bean, crisp citrus and chalky minerals lingering. Beautiful, balanced Chardonnay; can’t beat it for $15.
The commune (or village) of Uchizy produces only Chardonnay from its east facing slopes under the Macon appellation in Burgundy, France.
