Domaine André Goichot & Fils Les Dressolles 2013, a crisp Bourgogne chardonnay.  Wine is so good, but good wine is better!

Clean, fresh, crisp, pert, all adjectives that could apply to this wine.  A native a Burgundy is always welcome in our home and a while we usually lean red a good chardonnay – without the heavy essence of oak too common in new world wines – is a great opening wine for any occasion.  In this case, the ‘occasion’ was ‘Sunday’,  Domaine André Goichot & Fils Les Dressolles did not disappoint.

We couldn’t resist the addition of a touch of cassis (or at least one of us couldn’t) for a traditional Kir.  Priced at $20.70 (CAD) we snapped it up knowing that a true Burgundy white is worth every penny.    The Domaine André Goichot & Fils Les Dressolles 2013 marks at 86/100 on the Gypsy Scorecard.

A perfect wine for pork, a clean, lean wine to serve with seafood, with a light herbaceous linger and a cleansing finish.  We served it against a simple herb roasted chicken, a creamy potato and green beans.  Despite it’s lineage, this is a wine that serves well against the humblest of meals.

“Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup.  All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.” ― Paulo Coelho, Brida

Drink the whole bottle, a good wine waits for no one.
