From winemakers to casual enthusiasts, Burgundy’s Blancs may just be the Helen of Troy of white wines because nearly everyone esteems the region’s Chardonnays as the perfect standard of beauty. And for good reason, as the Blancs here are hauntingly tasty!
“Even if you think you don’t like white wine or don’t like Chardonnay, give white Burgundy a try; it’s likely to surprise you,” says Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier and founder of SommSelect.
Being the birthplace of the world’s most popular white grape, Burgundy’s Blancs are amongst the finest and purest expressions of Chardonnay. The good news is, high quality does not necessarily mean an equally high cost!
Seeking that very incredible classic bottle of Chardonnay at an amazing price point? The Morey family is one of the most well-known Chardonnay producers in Burgundy, crafting wines that are ranked amongst the region’s finest but at an extremely great value. Domaine Marc Morey was even highlighted by Jancis Robinson as a producer “whose current performance is greater than their price level”!
Domaine Marc Morey’s wines play on finesse, freshness and minerality, more than opulence; to fully express the purity of the grape and its terroir. These beautiful Blancs exude aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom that Burgundy zealots crave, while balancing rich texture and bracing acidity. Amongst these Burgundian beauties, the Premier Crus are especially statuesque and capable of very considerable age.
