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

Chartron Et Trebuchet Montagny Blanc 2013 Product #31304 (In Stock)
Chartron Et Trebuchet Montagny Blanc 2013 Chartron Et Trebuchet Montagny Blanc 2013

What an utterly delicious Burgundy value from the Cote Chalonnaise village of Montagny that's ready to drink and love tonight.  Opens with pretty aromas of orchard fruits, hazelnut and a touch of chervil.  Then pure and focused on the palate with fine intensity to the lime and green apple fruit and chalky mineral.  Finishes long and pure and mouthwatering, pulling you back for more.  A great match for fried foods or seafood or just to sip as an unusually complex, no oak, Chardonnay.

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.

Dom Deliance Givry 1er Cru Les Combes 2014 Product #31499 (In Stock)
Dom Deliance Givry 1er Cru Les Combes 2014 Dom Deliance Givry 1er Cru Les Combes 2014

From an estate established in 1935 that made first red and white still wines, then sparkling Cremant, and now - with the new generation - is moving back to still wine production.  And very good still wine it is!  This is a delicious, ready young, bistro-style red Burgundy with plenty of pretty Pinot Noir fruit - cherry, red berry - plus just a touch of earth and spice for complexity.  Easy to drink, but with true Burgundy minerality and cut.  Excellent value.
