An Affordable Gem
White Burgundy is unquestionably one of the greatest and most sought-after wines of the world. But with all the fame and rise in demand, who can afford white Burgundy anymore? Here is one of those rare gems that ticks all the boxes for an everyday drinking white wine. Tasty and affordable, the Chardonnay grapes are sourced from vineyard plots all around Puligny Montrachet. Spectacularly well-balanced, it is abundant with orchard fruit flavors, yellow apple, hints of pastry dough and a limestone core. Very neutral in oak, this is all about fresh fruit and immediate pleasure. In generously fruited vintages like 2018, entry-level, regional Bourgogne are a fantastic way to access all the pleasure of drinking White Burgundy, but at a fraction of the cost.
