Weekly Wine – Piat d’or

1 Apr

SONY DSCPiat D’or Chardonnay
2013
France
750ml
13% ABV
$9.95 (LCBO)

Here’s another classic that I have forgotten about. Piat d’or was the French wine we bought back when we knew nothing about wine except that – “All French Wine is Good.” We bought this wine to impress dates. How effective it was is a matter of debate.
Is all French wine good? Judging by this bottle – not really. This is a chardonnay so it is fruity and rather sweetish. It is listed as a dry wine but the chardonnay grapes have this sugary – fruity feel to them. Not one of my favourite grapes. The wine is not very refreshing and is a bit of a bother on the palate. It is not bud – I just don’t like it. I liked the Piat d’or Merlot that I reviewed back in May. It was unremarkable but passable. This wine is similar.
It is fine, I suppose, if you like chardonnay.
