White wines from Burgundy’s Mâconnais,
south of the Côte d’Or, are some of
the world’s best bargains in Chardonnay.
What You Need To Know
Burgundy’s large producers turn
out generic bottlings sourced from dozens—or even hundreds—of
Mâconnais vineyards. But this southern subzone is also a source
of site-specific wines made in tiny quantities that are often terrific
bargains as well, such as those offered by Eve and Michel Rey. The
Reys have a cellar adjacent to their modest home in the village
of Vergisson, one of the five top crus of the Mâconnais. Winemaker
Michel is a protégé of one of the Mâcon’s brightest stars,
Daniel Barraud; Michel crafted this cuvée from three acres of
Chardonnay vines, scattered in various tiny parcels on the slopes
outside the village. With its taut fruit flavors and minerality, it
gives a taste of classic Burgundy character at an affordable price.
