FRENCH WINES – BURGUNDY WHITE

It is said that chardonnay reaches its height in the region of Burgundy.  From the Macon in the south to Chablis in the north, chardonnay is the grape of great white Burgundy.  In this region, the grape generally produces wines of restraint and elegance which pair well with sophisticated seafood dishes or simply prepared roasted quail or poultry.

DOMAINE LAROCHE CHABLIS GRAND CRU “LES CLOS”’97 – CELLAR AGED SELECTION – “Very clean and wonderfully balanced, with a timeless charm and a focus on ripe fruit, [i]terroir[n], honey, smoke and toasted oak notes. So harmonious you want to drink it now.”…….…164.03

GEORGES DUBOEUF CHARDONNAY “ST. VERAN”’05…………………..37.99

LOUIS JADOT “MEURSAULT LES GENEVRIERES PREMIER CRU”’04 – CELLAR AGED SELECTION – “There’s a harmony between oak, fruit and structure here.  Hazelnut, honey, citurs and mineral notes interplay with a firm structure, ending in a creamy toast and vanilla aftertaste.  The mineral should emerge as this develops.”….92.59

LOUIS JADOT “POUILLY-FUISSE”’06 – “There’s some oak masking the fruit now, but plenty of wine underneath. Apple, honey and spice flavors linger and it’s well-balanced. Drink now through 2009.”…………………36.99
