In these fast times, we drink fast white wine. Tight, fresh, razor-sharp sometimes, good for the morale, but not for the enamel of your teeth. There is also another. Round, opulent, Roubaisian pleated. Fans know the type and immediately think of standard-bearer Meursault, the richly fleshed fermented and matured Chardonnay from Bourgogne on rich oak. It is a dream for many, especially because a good Meursault is precious.
ln South France, we recognize our need. And so on my test table, a 'house wine' from Well of Wine appeared, the wood-ripened Chardonnay from the Languedoc. No, I can’t compare it to a Meursault; it does not have that deep underlying layer. But what a wine ... "a beech," grinned assistant Tom. It sings it waves, it twists and sways with ripe fruit, pineapple, browned butter, vanilla, it creams like crème Fraiche on fresh whole milk, it blushes and enchants, and all without becoming flat or empty. Invite melting fish dishes, sweet roast chickens and your beloved. A wine as an overture of a swirling opera between satin sheets.
