Some of my favorite Chardonnays at reasonable prices are coming from the Macon region of Burgundy. They are such uncomplicated, refreshing, clean and crisp wines that you need to ask yourself, why this isn’t being done more domestically. This bright, clean, crisp Gem from Alain Corcia shows a distinctive nose reminiscent of green apples with a slate-like mineral undertone. In the mouth, it is vivid, refreshing, and crisp, yet well defined and structured, and with a finish that is mouthwatering and demanding another glass. The Bean has ordered me to bring home several cases of this excellent Gem for our near-term consumption with such dinners as salmon, lobster, or albacore (she has expensive taste when comes to food!). Great Value! ***** 12.5% ABV *****
Drink from 2016 to 2020

This is a killer value in white Burgundy and an all around fantastic bottle to stock up on. This starts with sweet and tart spiced Granny Smith apple flavors that are mouth watering and fleshy. The fresh and juicy middle of sweet fruit leads to a talc like finish of powdered mineral that keeps you reaching for another sip.

Here's a fresh new everyday drinker from the Macon ready for immediate enjoyment. 2014 is proving to be a very promising year for white burgundies showing a slightly more voluptuous texture and body with ripe fruit held together by the backbone of mouth watering acidity. Super enjoyable and super recommended! At only $11.99 a pop? It's a crazy good deal, don't miss out!

This is a wonderful bottle of wine, especially at this price. So far I have been very impressed with the white Burgundies from the 2014 vintage and this is no exception. A richer, weightier nose than the previous vintage is indicative of 2014 and leads to a pleasingly clean body. Good fresh acid carries the hints of lemon and melon and lead to a long finish. The acid here is more on a crisp, refreshing side as opposed to bracing and racy, perfect for when the days start getting warmer.

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
