When people come to us looking for value in white Burgundy these days, we tend to look south of the Cote de Beaune to the Maconnais. Serious vignerons like Marcel Couturier are farming with the same attention and conviction of their northern neighbors and turning out wines that can often surpass them at a fraction of the price. This wine is from a plot of 70+ year old vines on clay-calcerous soils in St. Veran, right beside the more famous Pouilly-Fuissandeacute;. This is a powerful, broad expression of Chardonnay with nice cut to back up its weight.
