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.

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