This wine come from the Southern Burgundy region of Macon. The fruit is grown in the village of Chardonnay and that funnily enough is the variety here also. I have to say it is not often you drink White Burgundy at this price where often the wines have a zero after the modest price tag of this wine.
The Talmard family is the oldest continuing family run wine estate in the Macon region. Mallory Talmard with her husband Benjamin are striving to create clean, expressive White Burgundies, they are winning.
The nose is relatively subtle with a clean under ripe nectarine, peach flower and a apple character. There is a honey suckle, fresh straw like smell to it also, there is a hint of flint there too. This wine is un-oaked for those who prefer there Chardy unoaked, but it does have a lovely creamy smell and texture that is present but not over powering, that creamy texture is soon a memory with some refreshing bighty pithy acid to drive it home.
This is a cracking wine at a good price. Imbibe with gusto with friends, with some roast chicken or creamy pasta dish… BOOM!
