2 x Bourgogne Blanc (White Burgundy - Chardonnay)
4 x Bourgogne Rouge (Red Burgundy - Pinot Noir)
This is a battle like no other. Bourgogne Blanc and Bourgogne Rouge serve as the entry point on the Burgundian classification and they MUST be made with Chardonnay (Blanc) or Pinot Noir (Rouge). We have picked 6 wines that punch far above their weight.
Starting in the whites, HENRI BOILLOT BOURGOGNE BLANC 2018 is a famous example from Meursault known for concentration and depth in their wines, this is a super-special occasion wine. JEAN-MARC PILLOT BOURGOGNE BLANC 2019 is is our fave White Burgundy producer hailing from the famous area of Chassagne-Montrachet.
The Reds are powerhouse producers. CAMILLE GIROUD BOURGOGNE ROUGE 2018 is a stunner from Pommard. PAUL PILLOT BOURGOGNE ROUGE 2019 is a new but already very well known producer from Chassagne-Montrachet. BENJAMIN LEROUX BOURGOGNE ROUGE 2019 is a scorcher from Benjy Leroux of Beaune - an absolute favourite of the critics and interestingly for Burgundy: a proponent of screwcap! Finishing with the entry level of the pack, good honest heart MAISON AMBROISE BOURGOGNE ROUGE, situated near Nuits St. George.
These are all rockstars in their own way, with Henri Boillot being a particular standout. STSWine
