"Le Chainey" Santenay (White)

Santenay is better known as a red wine appellation in the far south of Burgundy's Côte de Beaune, but Domaine Claude Nouveau, which operates close to organic standards, also makes an excellent white. And it's really a textbook Burgundy Chardonnay: lemon, honey and pear drops give way to a medium to full body, very bright acidity and an almond finish. Ideal with stronger-flavoured fish, rich cheeses or tasty vegetarian food.
