Mâcon-Verzé, is an intriguing region and village in southern Burgundy, whose wines are still little known. This version features aromas of lemon, lime, green apple and hints of fresh ginger showing the region’s Chardonnay in a good light. This tangy wine is a very nice aperitif. Mildly flavoured but I like it! White peach and melon with some green apple notes. Refreshing, clean and crisp.

Chardonnay food pairings: grilled pork chops.

Superbly balanced, this wine took its all from the vintage but without falling into excess. A mineral edge enlivens a rich, suave body and returns crisply at the end of a long, orchard fruit-filled finish. Score: 16 (out of 20) Source: Gaultmillau
