We absolutely love this wine!
Genetie is a classic Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy - fine buttery and floral notes on the nose and a wine of substance and finesse on the palate. Some creamy textural notes up front reveal the discreet presence of oak, whilst on the finish there is some underlying minerality and a hint of citrus zestiness that provides long lasting flavours.
An admirable accompaniment to the classic Burgundian dish of poulet à la crème (chicken in creamy sauce), or a shellfish chowder. Great with vegetable risotto and pan fried fish, too.

I bought this as a cheaper alternative for a Pouilly-Fuisse recommended in the shop. I wasn’t disappointed. It had that creamy/ buttery characteristic that I was looking for with some,but not too much, oak. Not too acidic which I really like in whites, having overdosed on Sauvignon Blanc for many years. I will still treat myself to the pouilly- fuisse on occasion but at around £12, this is a really enjoyable Chardonnay that has become a ‘go-to’ for the weekend.
