Louis Jadot Macon-Villages Chardonnay, 2010

This, in my view, is what Macon-Villages is all about--a fine unoaked Chardonnay with personality and character. It's been fairly widely available for about $12 a bottle.

The color is medium deep and youthful, but the wine has changed since I tasted it a few months ago. Then it was brisk and lively; tonight, it is mellow with broad Chardonnay smells and flavors. Apple, peach and minerals. Smells and tastes like an unoaked Chardonnay should. Best for drinking right now with just about any light meat or vegetable dish.
