Louis Jadot Macon-Villages Chardonnay, 2011
This Chardonnay is 100 percent unoaked and all the better for it. Bright fruit smells and flavors explode from the glass. Spiced apples and flowers with a touch of citrus. This may have had some extended lees contact to produce the creamy mouthfeel but the fruit is ever present with good acidity and balance. Lovely finish that keeps you coming back for more. For less than $15, this wine is a perfect accompaniment for Tuscan vegetable stew and would match up well with serious fish or seafood entrees.
