PIERRES BLANCHES CHARDONNAY 2020 BY VIGNERONS PROPRIETÉS ASSOCIÉS
We discovered Pierres Blanches Chardonnay 2020 during one of our annual trips to ProWein several years ago. This is a legitimate, classy French Chardonnay that has no business being this price.
This Chardonnay left a lasting imprint on my palate and memory – an even more profound experience than a large handful of $30-plus bottles that cross my desk.
What more can we ask for… At ProWein, there are 1000’s of producers from around the world allowing for serious tastings and a great chance for us to build relationships with Europe’s small and unique winemakers. We have found many interesting wines at this show and year after year the Pierres Blanches Chardonnay 2020 stands out from the crowd. The WineOnline faithful also seem to agree. Take a look at the reviews for the past vintage below.
Pair this Chardonnay with mild, buttery or creamy dishes, meaty fish (halibut, cod) and shellfish (lobster, shrimp, crab, scallops) or subtly flavoured, simply seasoned chicken. Pork dishes would also suit it very well.

“BEAUTIFUL BUTTERY CHARDONNAY. Was amazed that a 2019 Chardonnay could be this exceptional. We have had Chardonnay wines in excess of $100 and this wine stood up to the best of the best! Ordered a case and should have ordered 10.”
