Rich and Balanced Chardonnay
When it comes to an opulent white, I’m going to refer to a chardonnay. Earlier when I talked about how certain wines that are very rich in style can sometimes end up flabby and unbalanced, chardonnay is one of the grapes that, unfortunately, can have this happens too often. Luckily, we are able to get access to wines from one of the world's most prolific makers of chardonnay wines, Joseph Drouhin from Burgundy, France. Often with Drouhin Family's fame comes a big price, however, every once in a while we find a wine from them that way outperforms its price. Their Montagny Bourgogne Blanc is one of those. It has just enough crisp acidity to balance the roundness that is so classic with wines of this style. There is a gorgeous aroma of apples, pears, sweet cream, and honey.
