All the elements seem to just fall into place effortlessly in this white burgundy from the splendid 2009 vintage. On the nose and palate there's generous pear and apple fruit, with a hint of tropical fruit. The texture suggests partial barrel aging in passive oak, but it might just be entirely stainless steel, with the appealing texture due to the vintage. At well under $20 this is an excellent buy in 100% Chardonnay from its homeland. Try it with appetizers, seafood, chicken, turkey, veal or pork.
