Prince Michel Chardonnay

So two days ago Kate and I opened a Chardonnay from Prince Michel, a winery that's off of Rt. 29 on the way to Charlottesville, Virginia. It's nice, but a little bland. I really don't know what I like in whites that well yet, though, so I reserve the right to revise this review. Prince Michel's Riesling is much better, in my opinion.

We also recently opened a white from First Colony, a winery just outside of Charlottesville - quite close to Monticello. I forget what it was, actually - I think it might have also been a Chardonnay. I'll get back to you on that. This was delicious - a nice, grapefruity taste. We had it with chicken marinated in a spicey-lime Cuban marinade. Awesome combination.

Kate and I are going to a few more wineries north of Leesburg this weekend, so hopefully I'll bring back some more reviews.
