Maitre Renard Burgundy Chardonnay
Not all wines from Burgundy are ridiculously expensive. This cheeky fox of a wine offers an introduction to Burgundy at very affordable prices, so you can dip your toe in the water before you start splurging on other bottles from the world-famous wine region. Dry and delicate in style, aromas of nectorines and lemon rise out of the glass and onto the palate, coupled with lively, crisp acidity and a minerally mouthfeel. It's drinking great right now, and would match wonderfully with some seared scallops.
Pale and shimmering with a pristine nose of lemons, toast and grapefruit. A faint waft of gunsmoke and matchstick funk reminds of the wine’s Burgundian heritage. The palate is tightly wound but unfurls in the glass to display pears, lees and lemony citrus flavours. A highlight is the thrilling minerality and crunchy acid finish.
