Dom. de Coussergues Burgundy Chardonnay 2015 This is one of the best value for money Chardonnay's I have had for a while. Blind tasted I would argue New World wine. Stone fruit, papaya, apricots and just a joy to drink. If it cost any more then the fun would erode away quickly. Serve it slightly cooler than normal and it will warm your heart for sure.
This 100% Chardonnay produced on the hillsides of Saint Georges d’Orques has a light straw colour, a fresh bouquet of zesty yellow citrus fruit. Ripe and full flavoured with a rich and creamy texture, round and perfectly balanced by a fresh lemon acidity with a crisp, clean and long finish.
Domaine Henri Villamont, recognizable by the famous des Guettes tower and a typical winery located in the heart of the village of Savigny les Beaune. This magical place, surrounded by high walls and premier cru vineyards is unique in Burgundy.
