Chardonnay is a simple blank canvas of a grape, and one has to train it to taste a certain way. It easily absorbs flavors from its soils and surrounding conditions. It obeys commands. It reacts to its diet: when overfed, it gets fat. When starved, it can be too skinny and weak. It’s submissive and compliant, doing what it’s told. When treated with care and attention, it’s happy and exuberant, rewarding with flavors and complexity.

  • Little known by most wine consumers, Saint Bris is an unusual wine that seems to break the rules of tradition in Bourgogne. Most Bourgogne lovers are seduced by the beauty of barrel fermented Chardonnay from the finer AOPs of Meursault, Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet.
