You don’t have to spend a fortune for a great bottle of Chardonnay. Interesting, accomplished Chardonnay can be found for well under $15 — that’s no surprise. What was more or less unexpected before tasting for this roundup was just how much there is in the way of stylistic variation.
Louis Jadot Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay represents excellent value for the money. It also showcases the fact that enjoyable values are being produced around the world and right here in the United States. We just as easily could have included standout bottles from Australia, Oregon, and countless points in between. At less than $15, what have you got to lose?
