There’s a veritably minuscule production of Chardonnay in Beaujolais. Jean-Marc Lafont’s Chardy sits right on the northern limits of Beaujolais, bordering the appellation of Saint-Véran in Burgundy. It’s extremely good value – loads of lemon tang and fresh butter, while still being linear and focused. Makes us think of some honeyed goat cheese in pastry parcels. A fairly conventional production, but minus the nasties in the vineyard.
