Why do we love this case?

Maybe it’s just me, mofos, but I feel like white Burgundy hasn’t been getting the same frenzied adulation as its red counterpart in recent years. Don’t get me wrong, the prices for your Chassagne-Montrachets of the world have certainly not been affected, even if it is true. Perhaps with the proliferation of real world-class chardy regions all over the globe, the attention is just being shared that smidge more. We’d do well not to forget the white Burgundy wonders that are out there then. 

This pack is a mixed six of the best value Burgundies you’re likely to find from the thin strip of wine-growing heaven in eastern France. If you’ve not been giving Burgundy all the love it deserves lately, this’ll remind you exactly why these chardies are still king. 

Every case contains one of each of the following:

Domaine de la Meulière 1er Cru Mont de Milieu Chablis 2017
Citrus
Floral
Minerally
Medium-bodied
Bright
Concentrated

This family-run domaine has been making Chablis since the late 19th century. It shows. This is archetypal Chablis. For anyone who wants a wine that reflects the style, this is perfect. If you’re not too fussed and just want a great wine, this is still perfect. They’re one of the very few producers remaining who harvest by hand, and the care and attention comes across in pristine brilliance. The clean palate is dominated by white flowers and minerality. There’s a faint note of oyster shell, and a hint of salinity that screams of the unique terroir. Pop this down your cellar and watch it bloom into an absolute marvel.

Michel Laroche is a Chablis legend. After 45 years in charge of Domaine Laroche, he created Domaine d’Henri with his children and named it for his father. The first Laroche vigneron was born in 1781, though the family has owned vines since 1695, so there’s a fair few years of family knowledge to draw on! It’s a little riper than many Chablis, and speaks of a warmer vintage. There’s zippy acid and clean minerality, with fruit flavours that lean toward white peach and yellow apple. The hallmark Chablis clarity is there in spades, with no oak to mess with the peerless terroir. The previous two vintages we’ve had here at the ‘fo were exceptionally well received. Which is precisely why we’ve gone back for more!

Delicate

This wine is like someone took a textbook tasting note for Chablis, and decided to improve upon it. There’s lovely cool climate fruit flavour, but there’s also actually flavour! Some Chablis can be so austere they’re essentially mineral water – not so here. It’s almost gris-like in profile, with apples and pears and a touch of texture to the palate. The acid is sensational; it’s bright, clean and racy as the Le Mans 24. There’s also a gorgeous minerality, and even salinity, that points to the enviable terroir of the region. I wouldn’t recommend pairing with oysters because that’s what Chablis classically goes well with. I’d pair it with oysters because it’s absolutely crying out for some oysters.

Concours Général Argicole de Paris
Concours Burgondia

This ticks all the boxes for a cracking, approachable Chablis. The classic pairing for this wine is with oysters. We like to avoid the banal here at the ‘fo, but my word do you end up craving them after a glass of this. Be prepared and get a couple dozen in. The palate is clean, crisp and almost spiritual in purity. Green apple, aloe, cucumber and oystershell, with notes of saline minerality that sing of terroir. If you’re pouring this, we’ll be happy to do all the shucking.

Great old world chardy always seems to carry an air of nobility, for me. It’s not the golden hue – though this has it, so do many others. It’s not the 30% new oak either. If it were just about oak then it’s been outgunned many times. I think it’s the regal bearing; the way it carries itself. The palate shows awesome balance of citrus and stonefruit, with well-judged lees work that gives it a creamy nuttiness. It’s rich, but also structured, like some old palace perched on a hill. It’s a luxurious style, but not obnoxiously so. Think classic French cooking with this one (i.e. buttery leeks galore)!

Value for money white Burgundy? Yeah, it’s a ridiculous notion. No need to hang around any longer… Off you go… *pours himself a glass of Premier Cru Montagny chardonnay* Wow. There’s so much going on here. Regal, golden colour. Jasmine perfumes an almost minty-fresh nose. Peaches, apricots, honey, almonds, and hazelnuts on the palate, with a cool mineral freshness and acidity. It’s everything you’d hope a 1er cru would be. Sitting on the slopes of the Côte Chalonnaise, the vines are bathed in the dawn light, giving this an almost spiritual quality. There’s a reason Burgundy is such hallowed ground. It is simply perfect for making extraordinary wine. And all this before you consider the price. Thank god I’m the only one here to buy it. Oh, you’re still there? Race you to the cart.
