Louis Jadot Macon-Villages Chardonnay, 2010

Now this is what unoaked Chardonnay is about! Vinified in stainless steel to preserve the vibrant fruit qualities; and what great fruit it is!

Smells and flavors are of green apple--fresh and crisp. Also citrus and a nice custardy quality on the palate. Full range of Chardonnay flavors, ripe in the middle but zesty and fresh at the edges. Creamier and richer than you would expect from wine raised in stainless steel.

I've seen this wine for $10.99 at Cost Plus World Market and elsewhere--a major bargain.
