Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91-93

($80; just racked; a moderate 12.7% alcohol) Cloudy appearance. Pineapple, spiced apple and mint on the nose; more exotic than the Montee de Tonnerre. Sweet on entry, then dense and firmly structured in the middle palate, even a bit youthfully hard despite the fact that this is entirely free-run juice. The sweetness returns on the finish, which features lovely lingering pineapple and floral perfume.

About This Producer

When he created Verget in 1990, Jean-Marie Guffens applied the very same rules as for his own production. Verget's philosophy can be summed up in one simple sentence: "the best wine comes from the best grapes." This elementary saying is the corner stone of Verget. Thus, whether in Maconnais, Chablis or Cote d'Or, the best vineyards and best terroirs are selected to produce quality wines.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay

Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
