French wine labels crack me up. Well, this is a wine that's imported by a Negociant, which is basically a wine merchant and this is a table wine. Anyway, this wine is from Baune — which is a pretty well known town in Bourgogne in France. Enough with the pleasantries about Baune, let's get to the "blind" tasting!
This wine has a light straw color and carries with it some fairly average sized legs — probably a little on the higher alcohol side. Pretty nice mineral nose with some pear and caramel. Unlike an American Chardonnay, this wine has a sharp acidity and dryness throughout, and has a nice long gradual finish. No butter here, and that's usually a result of the aging casks — no oak. Guess we'll see… Coming up with the fruity flavors in the mouth is challenging as the acid/mineral combination dominates.
