Blason de Bourgogne Montagny 1er Cru 2007

This white Burgundy is from the appellation of Montagny in the Côte Chalonnaise.  The Côte Chalonnaise is known for less expensive (and hence less impressive) wines than other areas in Burgundy, both red and white.  There are bargains to be found though, although I wouldn't say this is one of them.

The wine isn't bad, but I expected more for the price (£15.99, £7.99 on offer).  It has a nice smooth, creamy character, but very  little in the way of flavour.  So little in fact, that I'm struggling to come up with anything else to say about it, except I would have been pretty annoyed if I had paid full price for it (which I never would have).  There are better Chardonnays to be had for less.

I'm giving it a 3, as it's not bad and could even be marginally enjoyable with a meal.  Usually a 3 means I woud buy it again, but in this case I wouldn't bother, I think it's too overpriced, and too dull even for the offer price £7.99.
