    Goedhuis, November 2021

    The dominant force in this exceptional Bourgogne Blanc comes from the Les Palland vineyard close to Puligny planted between 1945 and 1950. A beautiful expression of Côte de Beaune fruit, attractively scented with warm fresh croissant aromas. This is a very layered wine, with characters of vanilla and cream, and an energetic finish of fresh lemon sherbet.

    This is a pretty little wine with loads of energy and flair, and it looks every inch a mini-Meursault given its fruit integrity and balance. Just about drinking and rather juicy and clean, this is a perfect white for drinking from 2023 – 2025.

    From Pellands and Millerands, excellent sites which in another village would doubtless be classified at village level. Fine classy bouquet after a pale colour. This has a really impressive mineral thread running through the substantial weight of fruit, juicy and fresh at the same time. Fichet followers will love his 2020 BBVV! 5 star wine

Producer

Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet

This has got to be the most well organised cellar in the Côte de Beaune. Jean-Philippe’s attention to detail in his winery is a good indication of his handling of fruit, and goes some way to explaining the precise and distinct characteristics found in his wines each possessing their own unique timbre. These wines are made with great care and patience, and all enjoy 12 months in barrel (he tends to use larger 600 litre demi-muids rather than the traditional 228 litre pièces) followed by a further 6 months on fine lees in tank. His painstaking attention to detail is demonstrated in his wines, which are pure and seamless. Though most of his wines are only village lieux dits, they could easily be mistaken for premiers crus.

Region

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
