Michel Gahier Arbois Chardonnay La Fauquette 2008

imageA neighbor shared this white wine with us.

How to describe it? Well, if you enjoy gueze beer, then you probably will love this Chardonnay.

This unfiltered wine is the furthest thing from the vanilla-oak bomb Chardonnays of California, New Zealand, and Australia. It is not sweet—no, it actually is sour.

At first taste we were so caught off guard we thought, “Is this wine off?” after a few more sips. we decided, “Well, if it is off, it is off in a wonderful way.”(Rating: Good)

Arbois is imported by Rosenthal Wine Merchants of new York, New York. You may read more at
