Outstanding value red Burgundy from an historic domaine of Santenay, now owned by Louis Jadot. Santenay is known for good value wines, but this is one of the greatest we have tasted. Dark and brambly with earthy notes, but it is the sheer quality of the bright fruit and perfect balance which makes this our top Burgundy pick

Burgundy

Burgundy is a fascinating region that can take a lifetime to understand its complexities. A myriad of appellations and single vineyards further complicated by thousands of producers and merchants, each with their own 'house' style.

In simple terms, Pinot Noir for the reds and Chardonnay for the whites, but there are a few other varieties that make cameos such as Sauvignon Blanc, Aligoté and Gamay. The region stretches from Chablis in the north to Beaujolais in the south via the Cote d'Or, Maconnais and Chalonnaise.

Highlights include the outrageously good value Santenay from Prieur Brunet in the reds and J.A. Ferret's beautiful Pouilly Fuisse.
