When I first met Thibaud Baudin in Beaujolais back in January, he told me of a friend up in Macon doing ‘amazing things’ with Gamay and Chardonnay. 

This was exactly what members wanted more of at the time, so I shuffled around my itinerary to make sure I could see Guillaume for myself.

And I’m so glad I did - and I managed to come away with a small order of his best wines. It’s who you know and all that…

Pouilly Fuissé is probably the best value white wine in Burgundy. Centuries ago, scholars regarded it as on a par with Meursault and Montrachet.

This is a rich, ripe style of Chardonnay, made from 7 small plots, each adding its own character and complexity to the end result. Like with all Macon, there’s plenty of weight and intensity, but there’s a lovely elegance and charm about this wine too.

Due to a few tough vintages in a row around here, there isn’t much white Burgundy available. So snap up a couple of bottles while you still can.
