BEAT THE HEAT SPRING WHITE CASE
STOCK YOUR CELLAR FOR SPRING DRINKING
We’re not into oaky Chardonnay. We like our whites to be fresh, lively and complex, showing off the diversity of Burgundian minerality. You can taste the ‘terroir’ in Elden Selections White Burgundy, from Chablis, through the Cote de Beaune and onward to the south.
We will send you 2 bottles of each WHITE with Ground Shipping included:
Domaine Borgeot Bourgogne Blanc 'Clos de la Carbonade' 2022
This single-vineyard Bourgogne 'Clos de la Carbonade' is wholly owned by the Borgeots. And the wine they make there is the greatest surprise on our list. It's a small parcel, located in the village of Bouzeron, the northernmost village of the Cote Chalonnaise. But don't be fooled by its modest pedigree: the 'Clos de la Carbonade' has something special about it. And year after year we see remarkable wines that far outshine appellations much grander than Bourgogne. The Borgeot's can't explain it...yet. But there is a geological study underway to see what makes this parcel tick.
Domaine Gilles Bouton Bourgogne Blanc 2022
Beautiful example of how good regional classified wines can be. The caveat is that the producer must be top quality, small production. Complex citrus on the attack, with good concentration, saline minerality merges with some white pepper into the finish.
Julien Cruchandeau Aligote 'Le Village' 2022
From 50 year old vines in the hills above Nuits St Georges, this Aligote is fresh and spicy with green apple acidity. Bright, crisp almost crunchy fruit and a deep, floral lingering finish carried out long by the limestone minerality.
Jean-Jacques Girard Bourgogne Blanc 2021
A baby Savigny white. Its youthful vivacity tempered with a judicious use of oak yields a balance and a maturity beyond its years. That's the hand of the winemaker working with terroir that he was born to.
Domaine Oudin Chablis 2022
Classic sweet river rock minerality and floral freshness, this is a meticulous perfectionists’ Chablis ‘tout-court’ (as the locals call the ‘village’ appellation). This wine is at its peak now and will remain there for another 3-4 years. A lovely introduction to the Domaine Oudin style
Domaine Michel Rebourgeon Bourgogne Blanc 2021
From a tiny plot, less than half an acre. For those of you who know the area, it’s near the roundabout between Pommard and Beaune. Freshness, green apple and floral. Round, good depth and density.
