Description

Michel Goubard’s family has grown wine in the village of Saint-Désert since the 17th century, and his sons, Pierre-François and Vincent, proudly continue the tradition of quality at this venerated Côte Chalonnaise domaine situated on Mont-Avril.

Tasting Notes: This well-balanced Chardonnay offers vibrant lemon, pear and white peach fruit with a touch of richness, and a long, fresh finish.

Serve With: Great with poultry, white meats and fish, it can also stand up to rich dishes such as Zucchini Gratin and Butternut Squash Risotto.
