This has always been one of our favorite house whites: for the price, a bone dry, mineral-tinged, clearly French Chardonnay that is much more interesting to drink than just about any inexpensive California Chardonnay. The 2000 offering is our favorite yet. This one still has a mineral touch to it, but it is really the most fruit-dominated Verget Macon Villages we've tasted to date: layered flavors of white peaches, butterscotch, and citrus, with some floral components too. Very round with fully ripe fruit, lingering finish. Superb buy. - HK 2001-12-17
