Kent’s Pick: 2015 Clos Noly Macon-Charnay, Sainte Juste, $14.99

I tried and enjoyed this wine when it first came in a few months ago; I had been meaning to sit down with a bottle of it for a while now, and decided this month's wine pick would be the perfect opportunity to do so. First of all, it comes from the southern part of Burgundy, south of the Côte de Beaune, near the town of Mâcon. There are no Grand Cru or Premiere Cru vineyards in this region, but what you will find are some very good wines at very reasonable prices. This is an excellent entry level white Burgundy (aka Chardonnay) from the 2015 vintage, which is showing us some very nice wines that are ready to drink now. It’s unoaked Chardonnay, aged entirely in stainless steel tanks which helps to showcase the fruit. On the nose, the wine is very straight forward, showing notes of lemon and green apple, but on the palate, the complexity increases. And along with the lemon and green apple, you'll find a baked apple spice and a touch of minerality. The wine has great mouthfeel and texture. This is not a wine to be cellared—buy it now and drink/gulp it over the next year or two!  A perfect crowd pleaser for the upcoming holidays!
