Bruce PallingCalifornian Chardonnay has been taken seriously ever since the Judgement of Paris tasting in 1974, where it was the highest-ranking white wine against the very best White Burgundy. For decades, there was a Californian style that was richer and more full bodied against the elegant and balanced style of the very best White Burgundy, but that has changed.

This Saint Véran shows the very best characteristics of wines from the Maconnais, just south of the leading white Burgundy vineyards. It has a peach like freshness with some lovely citric flavours that make it exceedingly clean and pure. The Metz Road Chardonnay has more body, but there is nothing over-oaked or buttery about it. Made from a tiny selection from their vineyards near the Monterey Coast south of San Francisco, it is beautifully crafted with a perfect balance of minerality and stone fruit flavours. If this  originated in Burgundy, it would be twice the price.
