Immediately appealing and more lush and mellow than your typical Saint-Véran, this is the perfect Chardonnay for a nice glass of wine Wednesday night after work. Drink now.

  • A forthcoming nose makes this wine immediately appealing, with suggestions of pears, almonds, and something mossy dominating before these scents yield to lusher ones suggesting butter and honeydew melon. Remarkably rich and full-bodied for a Saint-Véran—a real overachiever. Borders on the unctuous, but balanced by a strong shot of acidity that persists on an extended finish. Hard to resist if you like your wines rich and fruity–even a little decadent. That said, manages to be fruit-forward without being gauche. Delicious now but likely to develop further nuance.

    Food pairing: Risotto, squash, scallops
