Thin body, fresh, slight hint of tropical fruits. Acid but also a bit sweet...

The venerable Jadot winery was established in 1859, but the family was digging around in the Burgundy soil a good 30 years before that. His Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay is ubiquitous. I'm convinced some people think Jadot is French for Chardonnay.
Nose and palate, this unoaked full Chardonnay is loaded with apples and peaches, sweet and ripe. The freshness is a zippy delight and cries for oysters or shrimp. Minerals are plentiful, and the finish shows a citrus edge.

This unoaked Chardonnay is a good food wine, but is marred by a sour acidic tang to the finish. It tastes of lemon-lime citrus fruits and pineapple. I can scarcely believe I am writing this, but we have here a wine that would benefit from a touch of secondary malolactic fermentation.

Extremely round and dense and applely even for the varietal. Dense yes, but simplistic and cruises on that one wavelength. Decently good.

Amazing Chard from Burgundy France! Unoaked, smooth, and great alcohol content. Notes of apple, pear, and butternut squash. Very refreshing!

Absolutely no complaints for this Mâcon-Villages unoaked Chard. Easy drinking when you don't want to think too much about it.
