White Burgundy Classics

05 Apr White Burgundy Classics

These two gems are perfect examples of why we love white Burgundy. While new world winemakers often exaggerate the weight and “buttery” quality of Chardonnay, Burgundy producers do the opposite and emphasize the nuances. These two bottlings are some of our favorites in the house right now–both complex and layered–and they come at very fair prices.

2015 Domaine le Clos Noly Saint-Veran “Le Clos”
On Sale $17.99
Saint-Véran is located directly south of Fuissé. This intriguing wine showcases toasty vanilla and peach pie flavors. There is a good spicy middle followed by a round, creamy finish. The wine is fermented and aged in 400 Liter barrels, including 10% new oak.

2014 Bouchard Pere & Fils Pouilly-Fuisse
On Sale $24.99
An elegant Pouilly-Fuissé, this lasts on a light frame with pretty scents of spring blossoms in an apple and pear orchard. Fresh scents of cream add to the wine’s brightness.
