And now, without further ado, it's time to introduce the first of the wines from Françoise Chauvenet that we'll be tasting on Monday at Zamora
Those of the Anything But Chardonnay persuasion should begin their special breathing exercises now; because, unsurprisingly, the white wines that the estate's representative Edouard Leach will be helping us get better acquainted with on the night are all made from that very adaptable and successful grape.
The Marguerite de Bourgogne Chardonnay 2013
is an unoaked, citrus-to-tropical-scented white wine that has smooth, satisfying weight in the mouth and a long, refreshing finish.
This is the perfect choice for helping make the most of a sunny evening outside, an all-the-bells-and-whistles upgraded picnic, or a chicken or fish dinner at the table.
Tomorrow I'll post details of the next wine on the list. In the meantime you can ring Zamora on 021 239 0540
to book your place at Monday's tasting.
