Chanson Pere et Fils Vire Clesse 2014 Product #30815 (In Stock)
Chanson Pere et Fils Vire Clesse 2014 Chanson Pere et Fils Vire Clesse 2014

Good value in white Burgundy is all too hard to find these days, making this classy, stylish and very fresh Chardonnay from the Maconnaise AOC of Vire-Clesse very exciting indeed.  It's from what is arguably the best part of the Macon, a cooler site with more limestone and more than a little in common with the Cote d'Or to the north.  Chanson was among the very first to bottle AOC Vire-Clesse following its creation in 1988 and makes one of the most classic examples - ripe, rich, and dry.

This 2014 show the lovely ripeness of the vintage in its rich, creamy, texture and generous pear and yellow apple fruit.  A note of sweet spice emerges on the mid-palate and flows on through the generous, fruit-filled, but still focused and minerally finish.  Wine Spectator has the quality level about right, but the wine has gained flesh and richness since they penned the review below.

"A crisp, elegant style, this delivers white peach, lemon cake and light mineral flavors. Balanced, lingering with lemon details and a touch of chalk. Drink now through 2018."Wine Spectator 89 points

Dom Dubois Bourgogne Aligote 2014 Product #30051 (In Stock)
Dom Dubois Bourgogne Aligote 2014 Dom Dubois Bourgogne Aligote 2014

Textbook Aligote, Burgundy's other white grape. Like all Aligote, it's a bit shy on the nose with notions of apple and toasted nut peaking out.  On the palate, pure and fresh and savory with Granny Smith apple, green pear, toasted hazelnut, and a leesy richness that carries through the mouthwatering, saline, finish.  Balanced and round enough to sip solo and a great companion to seafood and poultry.

Dom Dureuil - Janthial Bourgogne Aligote 2013 Product #30052 (In Stock)
Dom Dureuil - Janthial Bourgogne Aligote 2013 Dom Dureuil - Janthial Bourgogne Aligote 2013

More "Bourgogne" than "Aligote," this is a stunning white Burgundy value.  A touch of wood frames spicy citrus, apple, and fresh butter aromas.  Rich and deep on the palate where a hint of fresh herb adds complexity to the rich citrus and orchard fruit flavors with accents of buttered nut and crushed chalk.  Really coats your mouth but stays fresh and pure and shows impressive length on the palate and finish.

Dom Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Les Crets 2014 Product #30082 (In Stock)
Dom Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Les Crets 2014 Dom Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Les Crets 2014

This beautiful Chardonnay comes from 25 year-old vines growing on limestone and clay soils in a 1 hectare slice of the respected Le Crets vineyard.  Hand harvested grape bunches are destemmed and fermented and aged in tank and cask with 8 months spent on the fine lees to gain richness and depth.

Brilliantly clear and a light yellow-gold color (a hallmark of fine Montagny), the wine serves up beautiful aromas of chalky mineral, lime skin, toasted hazelnut, green tea, and garden flowers.  On the palate, it's precise, transparent, and perfectly balanced with flavors of green apple, tangy peach, toasted nut and just a hint of fresh, creamy, butter.  A touch of honey emerges with air as the peach/apple fruit gains strength, with brisk, lemony, acidity and chalky mineral showing on the crisp, generous, floral-scented, finish.  Wonderfully sophisticated and pure already, this will sing with shellfish or raw tuna now and gain more richness over the next 2-4 years.
