Domaine Gavignet-Béthanie & Filles, Les Athées, Nuits-Saint-Georges Blanc 2014
Nuits-Saint-Georges Blanc is incredibly rare, with only 3% of vines planted in this Pinot-dominant appellation dedicated to its production. This lieu-dit is a lovely expression of Chardonnay, distinct from the much more common styles found in the Côte de Beaune. Buttery green apple and spice-laden flavours feature a richness that builds and builds. Good acidity balances the weight and a slight savoury character comes through on the long finish. A great wine if you want to impress.
