Louis Jadot Bourgogne Chardonnay


PLCB Item No. 6406

White burgundy wines are the world's original chardonnays, but those grown in France are often lighter, brighter and less oaky. The Burgundy region's cool climate creates wines of delicacy and finesse that are dry and extremely food-friendly. Modestly priced examples like this one are generally given only a light touch of barrel aging, if any at all, so the purity of their orchard - fresh apple and pear flavors - shines through. Try this classy white with everything from smoked salmon to ham and cheese.
