I bought this by accident, thinking it was the ubiquitous "Les Charmes" I love so well. Realizing this when I got home, I was a bit disappointed, but upon opening the bottle I get another bottle to be impressed by from this co-op.
Seems to be a touch of oak (but not malo), this is a bit softer than the Les Charmes with a touch of apple on top of that at the cost of a little bit of minerality. The minerality and lemon are still present, though and everything is still in balance. I tend to like my chardonnay austere, so the fact that I like this as well as the Les Charmes means this is put together quite nicely. A slightly different stlye, but equally outstanding QPR.

I believe it says "chardonnay" on the front because it is from that village... don't AOC laws prohibit the name of the grape still?

I don't know what the French rules are but I see some labeled Pinot Noir now. For example, a Maison Champy Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir Signature that I served at a wine tasting social at my church.
