The Wine List #12

THE retirement project to sample the product of every major grape variety listed in Hugh Johnson’s pocket wine book.

IMGP5710Grape: Chardonnay

Wine: Macon-Villages 2014, Burgundy.

Alc Vol: 12.5%

What it says on the label: “Complex and elegant style. Citrus and orchard fruits taste. Full of fresh, citrus aromas and flavours with hints of green apple, this is unoaked, crisp and elegant.”

Food combination: “Creamy pasta and chicken dishes.”

Retired Bloke says: A delicious Chardonnay from Sainsbury’s ‘Taste The Difference’ range. It went perfectly with Jacqui’s chicken casserole.

One for the wine rack? Definitely.
