Domaine Castagnier 2011 White Burgundies - Great vineyards, super prices‏

Great vineyards and super prices

Lovely White Burgundy


2011 is an excellent vintage for white Burgundy. The wines have a typicity and transparency seldom seen, but always desired. They have ample fruit and a defined acid backbone. It is one of those seldom seen vintages that drinks well young and will age nicely too.

 

For years one of the big names for White Burgundy has been Domaine Leflaive. I have tasted many great bottles over the years. But sadly now, it seems the wines are not what they once were. However, the past reputation means the wines are still expensive.

 

Jerome Castagnier produces four different White Burgundies from Puligny-Montrachet and they just happen to be some of the wines Domaine Leflaive also produces. 

 

Far be it for me to compare quality but I can tell you the Castagnier wines are terrific and almost exactly HALF THE PRICE YOU WOULD PAY FOR LEFLAIVE.

 

They are serious bargains.

 

If you are a White Burgundy lover I suggest you give them a try. We have Puligny-Montrachet Villages, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles and the mighty Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru. Trust me, I think you will be very impressed.
