2010 White Burgundy Recommendations

MOTHER NATURE MEETS WO/MAN - 2010 BURGUNDY WHITES IN YOUR GLASS(ES)

In Burgundy, every vintage feels like a roll of the dice. Today’s disaster is tomorrow’s glory, Mother Nature willing. And, vice versa.

Yes, Chardonnay is the Holy Grail in Burgundy, but there’s also some awfully cool juice that comes from a few other grapes and sometimes for less coin.

5. Domaine Lucien Boillot & Fils Pinot Beurot les Grands Poisots (2010)

« Prev Next » 5 of 11
Pinot Beurot is an old Burgundian name for Pinot Gris. It’s hard to recognize the variety here, but its taste and texture are Burgundian, perhaps due in part to the 50 plus-year-old vines. This vin shows pure fruit, crystalline acidity and chalky texture. Fairly short length. Drink through 2014.
