Billaud, Samuel 2015 Chablis

This is a delicious Chablis from Samuel Billaud. Crisp, mineral with some great acidity, this wine is lively and fun on the mouth with classic flavors of lemon, green and yellow apple, and pear and a touch of tropical and saline notes in the background. This is a lean wine with some good tension that will be the perfect companion to salads and grilled fish.  Caroline Coursant

Briday, Michel 2014 Rully 1er Cru Grésigny Blanc

From the hillside 1er cru climat of Grésigny, whose shallow soils are mostly comprised of  Jurassic limestone. Fermented with native yeast in a combination on used and new barrels. The 2014 is shows white flowers and fruit with aromas of lemon oil, citrus peel, and lemon blossoms. The palate is briskly mineral, with stony, salty flavors giving way to flavors of green apple, tangerine, and quince, with a racy, snappy finish. Like many of the 2014 white Burgundies, there is a sensational combination of energy and complexity and this over-delivers at the price point. A fine aperitif and a lovely choice for scallops, roast oysters, or fresh flounder. John McIlwain

Carillon, François 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er cru Les Champs Gain

From 30 -year-old vines in 2 plots in  Les Champs Gain 1er cru high on the hill in Puligny-Montrachet. The 2013 is bright and floral on the nose offering alluring aromas of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, and Meyer lemon rind. The mid-weight palate features cool-toned flavors of white apricot, green apple, and  lemon curd, with hints of a sweet leafiness and discreet oak on a  distinctly mineral, verging on saline, finish. This has plenty of vibrancy and panache and will pair beautifully with shellfish or sautéed flounder. Lovely! John McIlwain

Champs de l'Abbaye 2014 Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay

From Chardonnay grown on an excellent limestone/clay parcel in Aluze, next to Mercurey. Certified organic, hand-harvested, low yields, very long (10 month) wild-yeast fermentation in barrel, bottled by gravity, unfiltered. This is an outstanding Chardonnay of terroir thanks to the great farming and vinifications at Champs de l'Abbaye.  Subtle aromas of stone, white fruits, lemon peel and herbs with a bit of new oak. The palate is intense and crystalline with strong mineral flavors, white fruits, citrus, spice and oak. (We are reminded of the Bourgogne Chitry by De Moor) The finish is dense and long with citrus, pear and stone - this is a serious glass of white Burgundy that will accompany oysters, grilled fish, roast chicken and much more. Not for lovers of Napa Chardonnay....

Chandon de Briailles 2014 Corton Grand Cru Blanc

Comprised of fruit from Bressandes (2/3) which per Claude de Nicolay lends richness and Chaumes, located beneath Les Pougets (1/3) which lends a degree of “saltiness.” The 2014 Corton Blanc shows a lovely balance between power and elegance. Aromatically it shows yellow flowers, orange peel and hints of sea spray and wet stone. The palate displays pretty flavors of stone fruit, Meyer lemon, and apple overlying an overt, if not overwhelming minerality on a medium weight (for Corton) palate. This shows plenty of energy and drive, if not mass, on a long, detailed, and mouthwatering finish. John McIlwain

Guillot, Julien (Vignes du Maynes) 2015 Macon-Villages

Julien Guillot of the Clos des Vignes du Maynes, makes this lovely Macon-Villages from certified organic parcels in Chardonnay,  Montbellet and Viré-Clessé on Bathonian limestone with clay, rich in silica.  Incredibly aromatic, with wildflower, lime blossom, green apple peel, beeswax and spiced  poached apple and pear. Supple and ripe in this rather warm vintage with 13.5% alcohol, it’s balanced by excellent acidity and minerality with more orchard fruit, apricot, and salted peach. Remarkably textured and long with succulent fruit, toasted almond, citrus, and saline minerals and pear on the finish. Totally unlike the usual Macon Villages, this is a delightful wine that will accompany grilled fish, fish in sauce, roast chicken and mild cheeses - and it's delicious to enjoy by itself. TG & DL

Lafouge 2014 Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés Blanc

As easy as it is to forget the quality of Auxey-Duresses Blanc, it's just as easy to overlook the sensational quality of Domaine Lafouge. The Auxey-Duresses Blanc Les Hautés (from the lieu dit situated next to Les Vireuils in Meursault) displays a fine balance of white floral aromas (acacia and honeysuckle) with white orchard fruits on the nose. The palate is racy and mineral with pear and nectarine fruit vying for attention with a good degree of mineral cut. This is pretty and a fine value in white Burgundy.  John McIlwain

Lafouge 2014 Meursault Les Casses-Têtes

The lieu-dit Les Casses Têtes is located on the hillside above the premier cru Les Gouttes d'Or and next to Le Tesson. The soils are thin and rocky producing wines of great energy and lift. Hazelnut, lemon pith, beurre noisette, chalk on the nose. Medium-weight, high-toned, fresh. This is very chalky on the mid-palate followed by yellow fruits, pear skin, and a discreet touch of oak. The finish is long, detailed, and articulate. This is quite pretty and would be perfect with soft-shell crabs, roasted cod, or crab cakes remoulade. John McIlwain

Lafouge 2014 Meursault Les Meix Chavaux

One of our favorite producers in Burgundy, Jean and Gilles Lafouge make beautiful wines which offer tremendous  value. Les Meix Chavaux  located beneath Les Luchets and adjacent to Les Chevalières. Lafouge's vines are 80 years old planted in calcareous clay producing Meursault with  textbook richness and minerality. The 2014 shows lemon blossom citrus peel and chalk on the aromas with a discreet touch of oak. The mid-weight palate offers flavors of ripe stone fruits and notes of Meyer lemon surrounding a chalky core of minerality. This shows poise and energy and while delicious now should round out with more time in the bottle. Wonderful with crab or lobster, better still with roasted whole fish or chicken. John McIlwain

Magnien, Stephane 2015 Bourgogne Aligoté

The 2015 Magnien Aligoté is a bright and lively wine, at 11.5% alcohol, showing herbal, lemon-lime, melon and almond aromas, with pear, mirabelle, stone and ctrus flavors on the fresh, very dry palate. Serve with vegetable soups, fish dishes, quiches and mild cheeses - or make the perfect Kir with 1/5 Creme de Cassis.

Moreau-Naudet 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Forêts

The 2014 Moreau-Naudet Forêts is a beautiful expression of both vineyard and vintage. The nose is saline, floral, and offers aromas of white flowers, Meyer lemon peel, and sea spay.  The palate is brisk, bright,  briny, and vividly mineral with a pungent stoniness, followed by flavors of citrus peel, crushed herbs on a driving, intense, lingering finish. This is just cracking and will reward aging. Great Forêts! John McIlwain

Moreau-Naudet 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

While the 2014 vintage resulted in a number of stellar white Burgundies graced with energy and complexity, some of the most striking have come from Chablis. Moreau-Naudet was especially successful and the wines show class from the basic villages thru the premier and grand crus. The 2014 Vaillons is a radiant example of the terroir, with airy aromas of stone fruit, citrus peel, honeysuckle, and wet stone. The palate is vibrant with minerality and punchy acidity, with smoky flint vying with cool-toned citrus, and spice flavors on a concentrated, tactile finish, which is just a shade broader than that of the Forêts. Lovely now, but there's plenty of dimension which bodes well for aging (if you can resist drinking your bottles in the near term). John McIlwain

Moreau-Naudet 2015 Petit Chablis

This wine comes from a single 2.5 hectare vineyard of 25 year old vines with southwest exposure and Kimmeridgian soils (as opposed to Portlandian soils, which are most commonly found in Petit Chablis). The wine shows quite a nice minerality with saline and flint notes. The bouquet is full of citrus, yellow apple and stone fruit notes with some hints of vanilla. The wine has great acidity for this warm vintage. This is a delicious Chablis for a great price. Caroline Coursant

Rateau 2015 Hautes Cotes de Beaune Blanc

Jean-Claude Rateau makes lovely wines in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune in his east-facing vineyard of clay/limestone and marne soils. Quite racy and bright even in 2015, the wine shows subtle aromas of lemon,almond, stone, pear and apple. Intense, very mineral palate with pear, citrus and stone flavors and terrific length. Decant or open in advance if drinking now, serve with oysters, grilled seafoods, roast chicken and mild cheeses or cellar for 5 to 8 years. This is a real Chardonnay of terroir and a great value!

Sainte Barbe 2014 Viré-Clessé La Perriére

Jean-Marie Chaland owns two estates in Viré (Macon), Domaine Sainte Barbe and Domaine des Chazelles, both certified organic since 2006. The Sainte Barbe "la Perriere" is made from 35 year-old grapes from a half-hectare parcel near Viré on clay/limestone soils, never treated with herbicides.

The 2014 shows elegant, subtle aromas of dried pear, lime-flower, stone, melon, pineapple and honeysuckle. The palate is very mineral, with stone and citrusy acids, dense pear and herbal flavors and terrific length. This should be decanted or opened in advance, or cellar for five to ten years. A lovely white Burgundy at a reasonable price!  Serve with asparagus, terrines, scallops, monkfish, halibut. D Lillie
