Domaine Nicolas Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc 2021 Magnum
WineSpark Price €48.02
Mylène tells me Hautes-Cotes de Beaune is the best value appellation in Burgundy. And upon tasting this, you’d find it hard to disagree.
The 50-year old Chardonnay vineyards are situated high up on south-facing slopes - so you get great flavour in the grapes but also freshness from the elevation. The soils are clay-limestone - which gives the fruit a lovely and subtle complexity.
Then in the winery the wine is aged for 10 months in a mixture of new and old French oak which gives the wine a gorgeous nutty, oatmeal character.
Everyone goes nuts for Macon - but this further north and is fresher, rounder, better balanced.
This is just textbook Burgundy Chardonnay at an amazing price.

Finding value in Burgundy is like finding a needle in a haystack. Luckily for you, I have connections with their finger on the pulse of young, upcoming producers and that is how Domaine Nicolas came to my attention.
The Nicolas family has been making the wine here since the French Revolution - Mylene and Benoit are the 6th generation to make the stuff.
