Chard Not Chard




When I crave a good glass of white I normally will not reach for chardonnay. I've had some that are quite exceptional but unfortunately most have tended to be from California, which are too big & viscous for my palate, or from France, which decent one in Memphis tend to be too pricey. However, one of my favorite importers, Bourgeois Family Selections, brings in a delightful wine from the Macon district of Burgundy that is absolutely delicious. The thing to remember is that I'm not tasting chardonnay so much as I'm tasting Macon. I'm tasting the plot of land this wine was grown on. It's round & lush without being heavy. The acidity is quite bright & leaves a clean feeling in the mouth. Fruit is evident such as pear & apple but there's also spice too which keeps it interesting. Domaine des Gerbeaux Macon Solutre $21.99. Grab a bottle & try to stifle some of that awful summer heat & humidity
