I'm going to stick my neck out and say that these are among the best value wines we've ever tasted. Outrageous quality from a domaine that dates back to 1790 and a winemaker (Philippe Vermorel) I see true genius in.
The white is 100% Chardonnay, think perfectly etched 'Bourgogne Blanc' – a wine for pâté or a party, Philippe quips. The red is a summer pudding masterpiece. Despite opening far grander things to cheer us up during lockdown I can't recall a more delicious bottle, it lasted all of twenty minutes. As usual best served cool.
