Au Contraire Chardonnay 2018 Review

Ever been to a French resto where they make their own butter? When it comes to the table it has this nice, fresh aroma. That's the first smell to hit you with this wine, with a mineral-driven nose. Then, on the palate, the wine pours vanilla on that little pad of butter creating a creamy, rich, and unusually affordable wine from this region. It’s a balanced, solid gift for a host who digs on oaked Chard.
