I’m normally very much in the Anything But Chardonnay club. Wines that seem to be deliberately ticking boxes for oak and vanilla, rather than letting any complexity come through are just not my scene.
But the Mâcon Villages Blanc ‘Les Roches Blanches’ 2011 from Majestic is much more to my taste. If there’s oak there, it’s subtle, but it’s buttery, and there’s a lot of fruit to it. Not the cheapest at £9.99 (7.99 for 2) but if you’re not sure about Chardonnay, give it a try.
