  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Sangouard 2011 Mâcon-Verzé Les Chenes

    Domaine Sangouard
    2011 Mâcon-Verzé
    Les Chenes

    $16

    A good introduction to the lighter and dryer style of Southern Burgundy Chardonnays, and a great everyday-drinking white. Ready to drink.

    • The youthful, fruity nose suggests apples and chalk. Light on the palate with a clean, refreshing acidity. Green apple and light nutty (almond) flavors. Smooth texture. Clean, fruity finish with a pleasant, slightly dusty note and a hint of lemon. Youthful but ready now. Drink up before 2016. Likely to be excellent as an apéritif or with seafood.

      Food pairing: as an aperitif or with seafood

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2010 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2010 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Youthful with a bright, playful nose featuring medium-intensity cherry and kirsch aromas along with black pepper, sweet spice, and a woodsy note. Hints of something floral hover in the background. The palate features tart maraschino cherry and kirsch flavors. Good fruit intensity. Bright on a moderately long finish.

      Food pairing: Lighter meats, ham

    2011 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Looking for a Pinot Noir that will impress guests yet costs less than $20? A great wine to have on hand—dainty and easy to drink but with great acidity. Likely to complement light fare. Lovely, delicate cherry on a palate laced with floral notes. Light in body, making this a great warm weather red.

      Food pairing: Chevre

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Sangouard 2011 Saint-Véran Les Rochettes

    Domaine Sangouard
    2011 Saint-Véran
    Les Rochettes

    $18

    Immediately appealing and more lush and mellow than your typical Saint-Véran, this is the perfect Chardonnay for a nice glass of wine Wednesday night after work. Drink now.

    • A forthcoming nose makes this wine immediately appealing, with suggestions of pears, almonds, and something mossy dominating before these scents yield to lusher ones suggesting butter and honeydew melon. Remarkably rich and full-bodied for a Saint-Véran—a real overachiever. Borders on the unctuous, but balanced by a strong shot of acidity that persists on an extended finish. Hard to resist if you like your wines rich and fruity–even a little decadent. That said, manages to be fruit-forward without being gauche. Delicious now but likely to develop further nuance.

      Food pairing: Risotto, squash, scallops

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Thibert Père et Fils 2011 Saint-Véran

    Domaine Thibert Père et Fils
    2011 Saint-Véran
     

    $19

    Our favorite wine to take to parties or drink with friends! Blended from multiple Saint Véran plots, it’s a vibrant, young Chardonnay with a beautiful bouquet — great for everyday drinking.

    • Apple and scents of nutmeg and other sweet spices show on a fruity, vibrant, youthful nose. Subtle smoke, lemon, a hint of butter, and a little perfume in the background round out the aromas. Light on the palate, with tart acidity lending verve to pronounced lemon-lime and pear flavors. Refreshing, with a silky texture and precise fruit flavors that persist through a clean, crisp, moderately long finish. Likely to be at peak in 2015–2016.

      Food pairing: salad, shellfish, light cheeses

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Thibert Père et Fils 2012 Macon-Fuissé Bois de la Croix

    Domaine Thibert Père et Fils
    2012 Macon-Fuissé
    Bois de la Croix

    $20

    Barely a notch below its better known neighbor Pouilly-Fuissé, this single-parcel Chardonnay displays the lively balance of fruit and minerality that characterizes Domaine Thibert’s wines.

    • An attractive medium gold. Fresh citrus and pineapple scents come up out of the glass to greet you. Hints of hay, pear blossom, and fresh pears on the nose as well. An initial richness on the palate suggestive of honey and pineapples is quickly followed by a rush of balancing acidity before a long finish marked by hints of melon, vanilla, and pineapples again. Has a distinctive and appealing astringency on the very end suggestive of apple skins. Not complicated wine, but delicious wine. Excellent value.

      Food pairing: Fish, shellfish, roasted chicken, roasted pork

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2011 Côte de Nuits Villages

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2011 Côte de Nuits Villages
     

    $22

    This Pinot Noir features beautiful, concentrated fruit. An amazing value, we find it a great everyday wine. Ready to drink!

    • Still young and a little distant at first, mostly with dusty, earthy notes on the nose but also surprisingly concentrated ripe fruit scents, a hint of floral perfume, and suggestions of wood. Comparatively light in body, but exhibiting rich fruit flavors balanced by brisk acidity on the attack before a rush of renewed fruit on the mid-palate and then an extended, slightly tart finish with a hint of cola spiciness. Approachable now, but likely to improve in bottle through around 2016. Excellent value. An excellent example of the appellation.

      Food pairing: Duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2012 Ladoix

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2012 Ladoix
     

    $22

    A particularly fine example of this small and little-known Burgundy appellation, this Pinot Noir is a must for the value seeker looking for off-the-beaten-track wines.

    • Pure fruit on the nose, tending toward strawberries, but overlaid with leather, musk, and darker fruit scents. Delicate yet intense. Keenly focused, with just enough acidity to balance the fruit and light tannins. Rich, seductive mid-palate preceding a moderately long, slightly grainy finish. A very pretty wine, in every sense—but not without substance. Far more refined than commonly encountered Ladoix. That Xavier Durand devotes this kind of attention to this oft-overlooked appellation speaks volumes about his dedication to fine winemaking.

      Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken dishes; rabbit or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Thibert Père et Fils 2010 Saint-Véran Bois de Fée

    Domaine Thibert Père et Fils
    2010 Saint-Véran
    Bois de Fée

    $23

    Sometimes compared to a Meursault, Bois de Fée is made from a single parcel of old vines with privileged exposition. It perfectly illustrates the potential for Southern Burgundy Chardonnays to outshine their more illustrious neighbors to the North — when placed in the right hands. Drink now.

    • An opulent, buttery nose with hints of caramel in the background. Straightforward, but appealing. Rich, buttery, up-front fruit flavors are complemented by bright acidity that lingers on a long, nicely balanced finish. Approachable now, but the lively acidity suggests this wine will mellow with a little more time in bottle. An excellent value for everyday drinking.

      Food pairing: Lobster, grilled fish, roasted squash with butter

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Thibert Père et Fils 2011 Saint-Véran Bois de Fée

    Domaine Thibert Père et Fils
    2011 Saint-Véran
    Bois de Fée

    $23

    Sometimes compared to a Meursault, Bois de Fée is made from a single parcel of old vines with privileged exposition. It perfectly illustrates the potential for Southern Burgundy Chardonnays to outshine their more illustrious neighbors to the North — when placed in the right hands. Drink now.

    • A pretty, pale greenish-yellow in the glass with an appealing nose suggesting nuts, smoke, sweet spice, toasted oak, and dry sherry. Medium body. Slightly tart, with lemony citrus flavors but also a fruity richness overlaid with smoke and something nutty. Supple tannins and a creamy, slightly chewy texture balance the brisk acidity and give the palate weight. The acidity instantly made me hungry. Rich on the extended finish. A wine with verve!

      Food pairing: Shellfish in sauce

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut 2010 Côte de Nuits Villages

    Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut
    2010 Côte de Nuits Villages
     

    $23

    A good basic Burgundy Pinot Noir, this wine is fruity and balanced. Ready to drink now, it will mellow further with a year of cellaring.

    • Offers simple, clean, straightforward fruit on the nose tending toward strawberries but also with a hint of spice and mushrooms and a little oaky toast. Not a powerful wine, but with good body, excellent poise, and a very appealing delicate, ethereal quality hard to articulate. Ready to drink, but attractive, fruity sweetness on a moderately long finish suggests there may be a little further development. Solid. An excellent value.

      Food pairing: Duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes
