Henri de Villamont, Bourgogne Chardonnay Prestige

£21.56
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

Richly vibrant white burgundy, offering characteristic aromas of red apple and grilled nuts, and a creamy texture on the palate cut with some citrus freshness. Lovely balance and length complete this fine expression of the Henri de Villamont style. Pair with: rich fish (salmon, tuna etc), shellfish, mild and soft cheese, cured meats.
