Ten best white Burgundy - The top 10

Every January, the release of the new Burgundy vintage is enthusiastically awaited, and this year was no exception - as witnessed last week when more than 150 Burgundian producers presented the 2008 vintage in London. Though the wines are available to buy 'in bond' through Burgundy specialists, the majority will only hit the shop shelves in the next six to 12 months. Which is why we have here compiled a selection of 10 great value white Burgundies that are available for you to enjoy now.
