Not a fan of Chardonnay due to its typical over-oaked and buttery character made famous by California vintners in the 1990s? Well, you may be pleasantly surprised by this Beaujolais Blanc which is a clean, crisp expression of the varietal that is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Winemaker, Jean-Paul Brun, is a living legend in Beaujolais, and his Terres Dorées domaine produces some of the finest organically-grown wines in the region. Unlike the majority of Beaujolais producers, Jean-Paul takes a Burgundian approach and destems the grapes, creating a more refined and sophisticated style of wine. Apple, pear, and melon dusted with chalky minerality dance on the palate with balanced weight and acidity. This has long been one of my favorite unoaked Chardonnays and due to its versatility, would make the perfect complement to all of your holiday meals.
