The 2014 JJ Vincent Bourgogne Blanc is an excellent everyday drinker that demonstrates the classic and super fresh style that is indicative of the vintage. Vivacious and crowd-pleasing, JJ Vincent is sourced from the Maconnais, a Southern appellation of Burgundy that shows off the rich and ripe fruit character of the region. Made as a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincent, who has managed the family domaine of Chateau Fuisse for the past 40 years, the 2014 JJ Vincent Bourgogne Blanc is classic Bourgogne: crisp and lively, with sumptuous apple and lemon flavors. The nose is perfumed with a pretty lemon blossom note and the wine has all the hallmarks of good acidity. The nice length also shows overall balance and freshness. Fermented in stainless steel and then finished with 6 months in oak, the cuvee benefits from a nice roundness that makes this an exceptionally easy drinker ready for any casual get-together.

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.
