For wine dinner 5/8/21 paired with chicken thigh confit and again a surprisingly good match. The Viognier is on the light and acidic side with subdued tropical fruits. The Jemrose of a better example but was just slightly over-powering for the food viz this wine. Another good lesson in how excellent pairing can mask flaws on both sides. In this case Jane’s chicken is superb.

Kind’ve flavorless with a bitter after taste. Not really a fan.

No longer a “Vin de Bourgogne”, now a “Produit de France” this is still a great example of a French Chardonnay. Slightly more mineral than a typical Burgundy, light bodied with peach and melon followed by a crisp, clean, and quick finish that then returns with some grass and citrus.

Like being hugged by an overly amorous Willem Defoe in the South of France. Heavy on the green apple. Too much is not enough.

Not too dry, not too sweet, but with a green apple finish.
