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.

Most of the cork used in wine bottles comes from the bark of a special kind of tree in Portugal. The bark regenerates completely every decade or so.
