100% Chardonnay
A rare, lightly seasoned ribeye roast has a buttery quality that I find matches particularly well with a serious Chardonnay.  I’m including this as an option for the adventurous host that wants to give his fellow diners a flavor experience they’ve probably never had before.  This lovely Chablis showed a floral nose with touches of earth. The oak is more pronounced, with a little vanilla and a firmer body.  As it opens over time, you get that nice hint of church basement‚ a combination of old wood and books.  I do recommend that if you try this, serve the Chablis before any reds.
