Winery: Chateau de la Maltroye

Vintage: 2004

Appellation: Santenay 1er cru "la Comme"

Varietal: Chardonnay

Winemaker: Jean Pierre Cournut & fils

Oak: French oak

Average Price: $25.00

Tasting notes: This wine has a brillant lemon-straw color. On the nose you will find some mineral (from the limestone soil), but also some butter, peach, to finish with some hazelnuts scents. As the palate it is a round wine, a typical taste of the style of wine from the cote des Beaunes in Burgundy, with a creamy texture, some lemon and stone fruits to finish with a light nuts (hazelnuts).

Food Pairing Suggestions: The medium acidity and the creamy texture makes this wine delicious with a sauted dover sole in a brown butter sauce and serve over a risotto. But I think this wine served to you at a temperature of 59°F while you are seated on a sidewalk in summer with some kind tapas (pork or salmon rillettes over some toast) will be wonderfull.

General rating: 89
