OUTSTANDING WHITE BURGUNDIES
TO DRINK OR CELLAR


White Burgundies are extremely versatile wines and ideal for entertaining. Below are a selection of medium bodied white burgundies with luscious fruit, great acidity and minerality in the finish. Some are excellent as a pre-dinner aperitif to have with onion, ham and mushroom quiches, or with cheeses such as Brie, Vacherin or Gruyere, and others are ideal with assorted seafood such as sole, snapper, trout, salmon and shellfish, and some you may want to cellar.


Town of Meursault

Village of Soultre Pouilly Fuisse

Chassagne Montrachet
2013 Boillot Henri Meursault
Price $64.99

"This is notably more reserved with its more complex aromas of pear, acacia blossom, lemon peel and apple scents. This is a bit more voluminous and concentrated than the St. Aubin with its admirably intense middle weight flavors that exhibit plenty of underlying tension on the citrusy, balanced, complex and beautifully persistent finish. This is an excellent Meursault villages and recommended provided that you have the patience to allow it at least 3 to 4 years of cellar time. Outstanding, Top Value."

Drink 2016-22
2012 Domaine du Chalet Pouilly Pouilly-Fuisse
Price $27.99

"Rich fruit is boosted by the wood aging. Together they give a ripe wine full of acidity and juicy yellow fruits at the same time. Itís a delicious wine, smooth while lined with acidity. The wood flavors sustain it, and it should be ready to drink from 2016." Wine Enthusiast 92 points

2012 Colin Philippe Chassagne Montrachet
Price $59.99

"This is elegant, with a supple texture and clean flavors of peach, apple and grapefruit. Fades gracefully on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018." Bruce Sanderson Wine Spectator 90 points

Chablis

Puligny Montrachet Village

Burgundy Vineyard

2012 Domaine Laroche Chablis Vaudevey
Price $47.99

"There is ample Chablis character present on the green fruit, citrus and quinine-suffused nose. I like the intensity and frank style of the punchy medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of vibrancy on the clean, agreeably dry and lingering finish that stops just short of austerity. This is really quite good and while this has no pretensions of being as refined as the upper level wines in the range, it can match them for depth and overall. Outstanding ".

Robert Parker 90-91 points
Drink 2016-18
2013 Domaine Leflaive Puligny Montrachet
Price $139.99

"Here the nose plays right on the edge of exoticism with its notes of fresh white and yellow orchard fruit, in particular white peach, along with acacia blossom and jasmine hints. There is a really lovely texture to the bright, intense and delicious medium weight flavors that exudes a fine bead of minerality onto the sappy, balanced and lingering finale. Outstanding" Allen Meadows' Burghound.com 89-91 points

Drink 2016-28

2014 Pillot Jean-Marc Bourgogne Blanc
Price $29.99

"A pungent nose of petrol, rise, floral and lemongrass notes introduces racy, intense and detailed flavors that display a hint of bitter lemon on the mildly austere finale. There is quite a bit of gas present and as such I would suggest giving this a quick spin in a decanter first." Allen Meadows' Burghound.com 86 points
