Borghese NV Chardonette
Here is a non-vintage chardonnay that was raised entirely in stainless steel and that smells of lemons and limes sprinkled with white flowers and citrusy herbs. Fresh and juicy on a medium-bodied palate, those straight-forward lemon-lime qualities stand out with hints of under-ripe peach and more flowers. Not complicated or nuanced, it’s still the kind of wine that you can drink and enjoy without thinking much about it. It’ll let your food or your friends take center stage, playing a supporting role.
All of that for only $12. Yes. $12.
