This 3-pack continues our attempt to make your weeknight drinking as stress-free, budget-friendly, and pleasurable as possible.
We have a saying around the shop that 'entry level' is a state of mind. The proverbial truth is in the glass, and these three Burgundies represent some of our finest values from a region where prices can escalate quickly. Far more than passable entry-level wines, these are our favorite affordable luxuries. - Jason
2018 Jacques Charlet Mâcon-Villages ‘La Crochette’
This is a classic Mâcon from Viré Clessé. The wine is aged in 100% stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and tension. There's a very nice floral expression here. The wine also offers green apple, meyer lemon, lime zest along with nice cut in the palate and vibrant acidity. It’s a perfect simple white burgundy for summer. - Daniel
2018 Goisot Bourgogne Aligoté
As usual Goisot offers some of the absolute best value of White Burgundy. This is aligoté from St Bris, a village west of Chablis that shares the same core of Kimmeridgian limestone. There's lemon, a touch of honeysuckle and clover. There's less aggressive acidity than you might expect from this varietal yet more than you might expect from the vintage- this is finely balanced and mid-weight. Bright and seriously satisfying. - Spencer
2017 Michel Juillot Bourgogne Blanc
Laurent Juillot’s ’17 Bourgogne is classic in its textured, oak-kissed flavors of orchard fruit, spice, and flowers. The combination of richness and purity constitutes a worthy goal for producers looking to make overachieving wines still in the weeknight budget strike zone. - Jason
