Last weekend, we held a casual get together with some fellow moms to celebrate Mother’s Day and sample some white wines. It was a blind tasting and, aside from the hilarious fact that two of us brought the same wine and we were none the wiser, (hello Far Niente!) there was one that blew the competition out of the water. This wine is a throwback to the 80’s (at least from what I have read) when Chardonnay was unabashedly buttery. One taster nailed it when she said, “It tastes like buttered popcorn.” For some that might seem too rich, but if you love a robust Chardonnay then give this little darling a try. You can find Rombauer Chardonnay at Binny’s for around $30. Another fun fact is that it was the least expensive of the wines we tried which proves time and again that the more expensive wine does not prove that it necessarily wins on taste.
We enjoyed this wine with a triple cream Brie, Vermont sharp white Cheddar and jumbo shrimp sautéed in garlic butter.
Rating : 🍷🍷🍷🍷/4 wine glasses. Superb!
Cheers my dears!
