This is a wine to bring along in your basket when you're throwing down a blanket at the park. With ripe tropical fruit and citrus flavors exuberantly displayed on the palate alongside a hint of toasted oak and butter, this French Chardonnay is full-bodied in style, yet it delivers a lovely vein of acidity that focuses and lifts the finish. That's exactly what you'll need while enjoying your tender drumstick or juicy chicken salad.
