With roast chicken with a bread salad with pine nuts, the 2007 Terres Dorees (Jean-Paul Brun) Beaujolais Blanc. As always, a nice unoaked Chardonnay. Ripe apples and just a little nectarine, some chalky minerality, a tiny herb/grass note. This seems a little rounder and less zippy than some previous vintages, but it has plenty of acidity to stand up to the food. A nice wine and a fine value, B/B+
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
