2007 Georges Duboeuf Macon-Villages 

Burgundy, France / $9-$12 Retail

click to enlarge wineofweek-1.jpg

This marvelous white Burgundy made from 100 percent Chardonnay grapes tastes the way many feel Chardonnay is meant to taste. The rich, medium-bodied wine is un-oaked to preserve its freshness and offers aromas of floral bouquets, lemon, pear, apple cider and spice. On the palate, citrus notes emerge, joined by bright green apple and melon, honey, almonds, balanced acidity and a crisp, clean, lingering finish. Sip it solo or drink it with sushi, grilled fish, white meats and soft cheeses. Buy it at: Hopper's Wines & Spirits, Rouses, Dorignac's and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Cure and Republic New Orleans. (Listings current at press time.)
