Pierre Andre Bourgogne Chardonnay Reserve, 2005

This wine no longer dances on the tongue as it did a year ago. It was undoubtedly at its peak then, but if this were your introduction to the wine, you would certainly not think it to be in decline. It's a classy French version of what Chardonnay is all about.

Medium gold with good brightness./ White peaches, pears on a bed of nuts and grains. There is a hint of lemon butter but just enough to frame the lovely aromas and flavors of the Chardonnay grape. Medium bodied and fine. Even without the dance, this is still one my favorites from the cellar.
