Jacques Bourguignon Chablis 2008

This was a $7 or $8 wine from Trader Joe’s. I bought a bottle a few months ago, enjoyed it, and grabbed a few more the next time we were at the store. It’s a white Burgundy that doesn’t list any varietals but is most likely an un-oaked chardonnay with perhaps a small amount of some other grapes in the mix.

Compared to your typical California chardonnay, this wine is more crisp and fruity than rich and buttery. It’s fairly light in body with notes of kiwi, green apple, and melon. It’s got a pleasant balance of tartness and sweetness, and a versatile character that would go well with anything from light fish and seafood dishes to rich poultry like the braised chicken we had with it. A perfectly drinkable wine on its own, but a great choice to go with a wide variety of meals. 88 points.
