2016 Ballot-Millot Bourgogne Chardonnay$24.99
A white Burgundy best buy we have been following this Domaine for several years and have dabbled offering the Meursaults they are noted for. This 2016 Bourgogne Blanc is in essence a mini Meursault with hints of hazel nuts, wrapped with yellow fruits, minerals, and saline. The yields in this vineyard were extremely low giving this wine almost a viscous feeling with a long lingering finish. As Neal Martin says a fantastic value! Perfect for the upcoming holiday parties!
Neal Martin 90 pts! The 2016 Bourgogne Blanc has a terroir-driven bouquet with fine delineation, quite granitic with hints of cooking apple developing with time. The palate is taut and fresh with impressive depth, a Bourgogne Blanc full of flavour with a vibrant, saline finish. A brilliant value.
