You’ll immediately notice that the Mâcon-Villages Blanc lacks the manifest fruitiness of American Chardonnays, and whites in general. Potel has crafted a simple nose featuring notes of fresh honey and roasted almonds. It crosses the palate containing traces of limestone and chalk from the minerality of Burgundy’s soil, which brings a freshness that lingers on through the finish. This Chardonnay, like all French white wines, pairs well with food especially poultry and light seafood dishes, aged white cheeses, or perhaps even some grilled pork chops. But while you can complement it with savory food that doesn’t require the typical fruitiness, you may very well choose to enjoy it alone as a nice contrast to our more readily available American counterparts. The Mâcon-Villages Blanc is comprised of 100 percent Chardonnay grapes hailing from the southern portion of France’s infamous Burgundy region, one of the premier wine making regions in France along with Champagne and Bordeaux. Like our Grgich Hills offering from Napa Valley, Burgundy is another internationally renowned terroir. Maison Nicolas Potel has been carefully choosing his grapes from old vines (most are which more than 35-years-old) planted across many different microclimates and a variety of clay and chalk soil types stretching across the region. Winemakers draw upon generations of experience to blend the regional diversity within this authentic appellation to ensure amazing consistency across vintages. You’ll enjoy comparing the French and American Chardonnays for yourself.
