Goisot Chardonnay

I do not drink much French Chardonnay, and if I do, I try to find good value matched by quality - not easy.

This medium weight wine almost gets me there. The father and son team Guilhelm and Jean-Hugues Goisot make wine near Chablis in the less highly regarded Yonne area. The 2015 Goisot Bourgogne Côtes d'Auxerre Blanc has an attractive profile of citrus, grapefruit and passionfruit flavours. There is a small oak influence on the palate. This wine is perhaps a little broad (2015 was very warm), but it goes well with chicken or salad.

Score: 91/+
