Fave Chardonnays from the Côte Chalonnaise & Mâconnais from Spring 2014

I spent three beautiful spring days in May in the cellars of the Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais rather than in the sunshine. So it was the Chardonnays (and Pinot Noirs, of course) that brightened my days.

Here are my top 15 Chardonnay picks on from my twelve visits this spring.

9. Lafon Vire-Clesse (2012)

If a Viré-Clessé can live over a decade and do it well, you’d better believe this will be the one. The chalkiness of this wine is startling yet invigorating. The wine exudes citrus peel, oyster shell, flint and almond skin. Despite all these lean elements, there’s a nicely juicy core to give the whole good balance. 92 pts
