DESCRIPTION
  • Everyone's favourite producer of bargain Beaujolais returns, and this time with one of the best value white Burgundy's we have uncovered in years. As you've probably noticed, getting anything from the Cote d'Or for less than $30 a bottle is near on impossible. It's some of the most expensive real-estate in the world, and with the prevailing run of low-yield vintages and catastrophic climactic events lately, the prices have only gone up further.

    Enter, young-gun new wave negociant Phillipe Bouchard, who has upended everything we knew about the region and its crazy pricing. This Bourgogne, made solely from Chardonnay, is sourced from the lower half of the Maconnais, in a region no far from Cote de Brouilly. It's a lovely wine, of grandiose appeal. Marked by its harmonious notes of green apple, almond and chalk, there is also a warming character that comes from some added richness and ripeness of fruit; think grilled pineapple and stonefruit and you get the picture. 

    We've been looking for a bargain Burgundy for yonks, and in this Philippe Bouchard Bourgogne Blanc, we've found our winner. At it's everyday price of $28 a bottle, it presents good value. At today's unheard of price, it makes this one of those 'back-up the ute' kind of notions. Burgundy, for under $15 bottle? Surely that can't be right.
