Joseph Drouhin "Laforet" Chardonnay (Bourgogne) 2012 sponsored wine review by (PB)

Nice lemon yellow with a bouquet of vanilla and citrus with creme brulee to boot.

Palate--Vanilla and tropical fruit with a citrusy beam and a nice balanced foundation with a racy acidity.

Finishes with a ripe pineapple note.

This is a delicious and affordable Chard at the $18 price point. It is more "new world" in style than I would have thought which isn't a bad thing as far as I'm concerned. Both of the "LaForet" I have sampled (see previous review on the (Pinot Noir) are quite nice and a decent value so raise a glass!
