Review: 2017 Thierry et Pascale Matrot Bourgogne Chardonnay
The French are tiptoeing their way to adding varietal information to wine labels, as is evidenced in this white Burgundy, labelled underneath as “Chardonnay.” Lightly oaked, there’s plenty of fruit left in the wine here, which bristles with sharp notes of lemon and lime. A base of pear, a hint of fig and a twist of vanilla on the finish all add body and complexity, and they help to balance out the citrus kick up front. Lively and refreshing, it’s an outstanding value for the region.
