I’ve been digging this bright, sleek number lately, perhaps to fight the dog-days doldrums, or maybe just because it’s darn good. Though not dirt cheap at $15, it packs enough complexity to make the price well worthwhile. ..Lean and mean − but not big and bad − Domaine des Malandes Cuvee Amandine Chablis 2014 features racy fruit and a chalky, mineral-tinged finish. It’s definitely aimed at lovers of acidic, clean Chardonnay (or any white, for that matter), making it crazy-food friendly and easy to down by the bottle.

Nice citrus and mild malolactic aromas.  Flavors of melon, green apple, mild peach and minerals. There is medium body and a nice crisp finish.  This is a definitely French-style Chardonnay crisp and clean and a great value at the price.
