The Region: Burgundy

master vintner burgundy wine France produces more fine wine than any other country in the world, in large part due to the incredible complexity of the land. The unique climate, terroir, and history of countless locales makes each region vastly different from the next…the very definition of varietal!

Until relatively recent times, the only way to transport wine from the inland, eastern region of Burgundy was by way of donkey-track. As such, Burgundian wines developed in isolation, becoming idiosyncratic, complex, and almost mysterious.

The vineyards of Burgundy have been shaped by that same spirit, consisting of thousands of small holdings dating back to Napoleonic times. In some areas, no two rows were owned by the same farmer. And that individualistic, quirky character is evident in the region’s renowned Chardonnays. Some say that drinking Bordeaux is like doing algebra, while drinking Burgundy is like experiencing a dream.

The Wine: Philosophie Chardonnay

Ripeness governs Chardonnay’s character: in the hot sun of the new world it can be soft and lazy, but grown in France it shows both rich fullness and characters of lemon, apple, peaches and figs, along with well-finessed aromas of sweet vanilla, cream, beeswax and minerality.

Between lush mouthfeel and a smooth finish it’s tempting to drink alone, but the firm acidity and bold fruit complements a wide range of foods—try semi-soft cheeses, herbed fish dishes, grilled vegetables, and seafood (especially lobster!) Keep this wine in mind for holiday entertaining, as nothing tames a turkey like a rich, satisfying Chardonnay.
