Louis Jadot, Mâcon-Villages 2014, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A balanced Mâcon Villages that expresses a cool-weather-chardonnay style.
Lemon in color, this wine has a nose of green apple.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied chardonnay presents a soft texture and high acidity followed by a combination of just-ripened and under-ripe green fruit.
The wine has a medium finish and a flinty character.
Bottle Note: Origin – Produced in the Mâconnais region of Burgundy which is well-suited to the chardonnay grape. It is made without oak contact to maximize the vibrant flavor. Grape – 100% unoaked chardonnay. Flavor – Bright and crisp with notes of apple; a classic expression of this Burgundy grape. Pairing – Perfect as an aperitif or with shellfish, crab cakes or goat cheese.
