Burgundy Box

Regular price £75.00

Sometimes it’s better to stop the tomfoolery and sit down to some Burgundy where the wines are timeless, expressive, and hauntingly beautiful. Here’s a chardonnay, an aligoté (chardonnay's cousin), and a pinot noir, all showing supremely high levels of finesse.  

Vini viti vinci, Bourgogne Aligote breau 2018, Chitry (Buy and drink these wines as often as you can. Wine-maker Nicolas Vauthier buys organically grown grapes still on the vine and harvests them himself. Somehow he has a knack for turning in wine after wine which have fruity and direct flavours, silky textures and a core that really reveals the essence of the grape in question.)

Domaine Valette, Macon Chaintre 2015, Macon (It's rare to find a bottle like this which delivers the optimal ratio of price to beauty/complexity/deliciousness. 100% Chardonnay vinified without sulphur, packeted yeasts, chaptalisation nor acidification)

Clos des Vignes du Maynes, Macon rouge 2017, Mâcon (from a domaine which was first planted in the 10th century. This bursts with red berry fruit but with a mineral intensity that makes you feel like you're drinking something sacred.)
