Daniel Johnnes is a legend in the wine world. He's been called the "Dean of American sommeliers" by the Wall Street Journal and has spent decades working for iconic restaurant groups like Montrachet, Myriad and the Boulud Dinex Group in New York. A wildly enthusiastic fan of all things French, especially wine, Mr. Johnnes created La Paulee de NY, a week-long fine wine event which promotes the wines and winemakers of Burgundy through a series of specialized seminars, tastings and dinners. One of those tastings is a $10,000/head DRC (Domaine de la Romanee-Conti) lunch which is attended by Burgundy collectors from all over the world.

Petit Chapeau Bourgogne Blanc is a Daniel Johnnes wine in collaboration with some of those Burgundy producers. We tasted this delightful white and loved it. It has crisp, gorgeous minerality, and is perfect for fish, shellfish, chicken dishes and pastas, hearty salads with cannellini beans, and so much more. At this price, and given who made it, it is a steal. Run, don't walk winelovers.

Winery:  "The wine is made by Daniel Johnnes' good friend Pierre Meurgey from a plot in Uchizy. Average age of vines is 35 years. Exposure: East / South East. The grapes are hand harvested, and fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel. Full malo-lactic. The style is fresh, vibrant, and pure Chardonnay."

Trade Notes I: "Aromas of lemons, white flowers and peaches. Very mineral, lemongrass character - easy drinking."

Trade Notes II:  "Petit Chapeau ("Little Hat") is a value-driven brand created by Daniel Johnnes. With reliable, top-notch sources and excellent craftsmanship, these wines reflect their place of origin clearly and honestly, and offer consumers a terrific alternative to the ocean of over-manipulated, stripped, character-less value wines on the market."
