Michel Picard Macon-Villages Chardonnay, 2007

When I saw this wine for $6.99 (marked down from $16.99) at the huge Jungle Jim's store in Cincinnati, I didn't hesitate to snap up a few bottles. The 2007 vintage in Burgundy was a good one and should be drinking well as long as the wine has had proper storage. I was not disappointed.

The wine was low key--oriented toward fruit rather than oak--as a Macon Villages should be. It's not a wine to turn heads, but as the meal went on, all the fruit qualities of good Chardonnay came forward. Green apples, citrus, pears and white flowers. A very pretty wine and certainly worth $6.99. Wish I had bought more because this wine has a few more years of prime drinking.
