Don’t look now, but more and more French wine producers are putting the varietal of their wines right on the label. Look no further than JJ Vincent’s Bourgogne Blanc, where “Chardonnay” is in lettering almost as large as the year of the vintage.
This wine from southern Burgundy is crisp with green apple and tart lemon notes, not at all oaky, and finishes with hints of mango and banana. Moderate body, enough to give it a little bit of heft. A bargain at 13 bucks.
