2013 Domaine de Chene-Colombe Macon Villages
I first came across this wine in the 2011 vintage about 10 months ago, so was happy to see the 2013 appear at my Costco. After I reviewed the 2011 back in May of 2014 I had several readers write in that they really enjoyed this wine, and agreed with my take that this was a pretty good White Burgundy at a fair price ($14.89 this year vs $13.99 last year).
I still get a little vegetable on the nose, but not as much as my notes from the prior review indicate. As I dig into this one more, I think it’s the body that really catches me. The flavors are pleasant, nice citrus, apple, lemon, but there is a slight underlying creamy depth to the body that stands out. And the finish is perfect, lots of lemon sticks around (like you just finished a Lemonhead). I enjoy this wine/vintage more than I did the prior one.
Good wine, good Costco buy. Check this one out, Chardonnay fans for sure, but all white wine fans likely see something to like here.
