Wine News - Chardonnay in a Tube
Renowned sommelier Daniel Johnnes keeps the surprises coming. Earlier this fall, he left his 20-year post at New York's Montrachet to become wine director for Daniel Boulud's restaurant empire. Now Johnnes and Boulud have partnered with legendary Burgundian winemaker Dominique Lafon to create dtour, a crisp Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay with a green-apple finish. It comes in a three-liter tube with a tap, "to take on picnics," says Johnnes ($36; dtourwine.com).
