Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine Of The Week -2003 Macon Chardonnay - Talmard

If you are used to California chardonnay, you may not recognize this as chardonnay. It is pale straw in color, with a fabulous nose of grasses and straw. It is light bodied, grassy, with hints of citrus flavors. This wine is actually more like an an Entre-Deux-Mers or white Bordeaux than the usually more minerally Macon Villages. The flavor profile is closer to Northwest Semillon and the body more like a Pinot Gris. It is definitely a food wine - seafood, fish, chicken, veggies. Best of all, it is only $9 a bottle. I bought mine at La Cantina.
