Domaine Vincent Girardin Meursault 2006

Maybe I am super spoiled, but this is one of the few Chardonnay I have ever enjoined drinking. $170. Meursault is an AOC within Côte de Beaune. Compared to other Chardonnay, Mersault has more body, bone dry, more alcohol, more richness with mineral, toast, and peach flavour. On the nose, it has a complex aroma of fresh, hazelnut, peach, citrus, vanilla note. On the palate, the wine is clean, intense, complex, with a hint of mineral and a spicy finish. I wished I wasn't at a wine tasting; I would have drank the entire glass and asked for more.

This wine pair well with herb roasted chicken and steamed seabass or halibut. Something weighty but not too intense in flavour.
