Deux Montille Auxey-Duresses Blanc, 2007, Burgundy, France

16 Jan

DSC03222Love some good white Burgundy with some bottle age on it? Do your tastes run to Meursault rather than Chablis? Auxey-Duresses lies just west-northwest of the more famous Meursault AOC, and this wine leans that full, beautiful, hazelnutty direction. Made by a brother and sister, this wine is sourced from two vineyard parcels abutting Meursault’s Les Luchets vineyard. Supple, aromatically rich Chardonnay that’s beginning to show its true strengths. $29

Bruno Clair Marsannay Blanc, 2010, Burgundy, France

16 Jan

DSC03221As the grandson of the founder of Burgundy’s famed Domaine Clair-Dau, Bruno Clair has winemaking in his blood. His Marsannay white is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Blanc grown in very fine clay soil. The tropical fruit aromas of Chardonnay translate to the palate, while the Pinot brings roundness and meatiness before the long, bold finish. Enjoy with classic, minimalist roast chicken. $42
