Domaine Chanson Savigny-Lès-Beaune Hauts Marconnets 1er Cru 2009, France

Food Pairing
Chicken cutlets or fish sautéed in butter

The nose offers up a classic white Burgundy hint of mineral and struck match, evidence of the wine's extended contact with spent yeast cells in barrel. It's a lovely thing when subtle, and fortunately that's the case here. This complex chardonnay is medium-full-bodied, with juicy tropical fruit, a whisper of vanilla and fresh acidity. It would be splendid with chicken cutlets or fish sautéed in butter. Available in Ontario.
