Domaine Talmard Macon-Chardonnay

June 19, 2013

20130619-102734.jpg With lots of outside entertaining on the horizon, we really like to find a few affordable whites to have around to serve when we have guests. This Wine Wednesday find is new for us this year, and I am liking it quite a bit. This is 100% Chardonnay. Some Chard can be too sweet for my taste, while I prefer it to be dry. One of the reviews I read called it taut and sharply focused. Wine reviews make me chuckle. All that aside, this is seriously tasty white that is nice solo or lovely with Summery food. At 14 bucks or less a bottle, it hits all the winning points for a wine to serve for large gatherings or small.

A word about my Wine Wednesday posts. One of my more frequently asked questions via e-mail after I write about a wine is where to get it. Since folks are reading from both near and far, sadly I don’t always have an answer for the query. We buy our wine from small independent wine shops, as well as at the grocery store. My suggestion is to get friendly with the wine buyer where you like to shop. Many times they will order bottles I have been on the hunt for, even if it is not something they stock. The key is that the wine you are looking for is carried by a distributor that the establishment works with. If you still come up dry, Google the wine, and it should give you locations to get the wine. Or at the very least who sells that type of wine that will ship it. I hope that helps on hunting down some of the Wine Wednesday selections. Happy almost officially Summer!
