Louis Jadot Bourgogne Chardonnay Couvent des Jacobins 2019

Burgundy, FranceThe Jadot Bourgogne Blanc is 100% chardonnay purchased from growers in the Mâconnais and Côte Chalonnaise and more recently from Cote d’Or sites. A third is barrel-fermented; the rest is fermented in stainless steel, and a portion is aged in a barrel. The latter lends it a bit of weight and roundness that smooths out the mid-palate and finish. 2019 is a high-quality vintage and the kind of year when Bourgogne wines can shine and be great buys. The colour is light, the nose attractive with mineral, stony, green apple notes, the mid-palate fill in with richer nutty citrus fruits with a touch of tropicality — delicious for the price and appealing to Euro-style chardonnay drinkers.Tasted: 17 September 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
