Louis Bouillet Blanc de Blanc (France)
Burgundy is The place for Chardonnay. This wine is an intermingling of grapes from different areas, each for their own very special characteristics. Those from the Mâconnais give fattiness and suppleness, while those from the Yonne and the Chatouillis give liveliness and freshness. When young it is quite pale, taking on golden or straw-colored tints with the years. The aromas are floral and citrus, evolving to buttery and brioche notes with age. A supple wine with very complex secondary aromas.
