Simple Fare

This Domaine is in Fuissé..but the Chardonnay here (actually written on the back label) is from a village near Meursault. The vines are up to 60 years old.

Burgundy, France
How best to describe this..first impression..plainly dressed girl with a heart of gold.

Some butter and cream on the nose...cool and elegant..a little layed back..but the flavour shows it's 'heart'...concentrated old vines...and not a wine you can drink and chat with..you need to work with it...exotic fruits...minerally..and a slight 'spritz'
at the finish.
Points 16
Liver with brown mushrooms in a white wine sauce and some pasta..simple fare that is delicious..as are many simple things in life.
