Axel Prufer (Le Temps des Cerises) 'La Peur du Rouge' 2019
Plushy chardonnay (and a little clairette) from Beziers, in southern France!
Axel Prufer is from Germany originally, but moved to France as a young man to learn the ins and outs of winemaking. You'll find mostly light, lively reds in his cellar, but if you have the "fear of red," as the label says, this is the bottle for you. Fuller-bodied, with ripe fruit and welcome pops of acidity.
