You can usually judge a producer by the quality of its entry-level wine, and this Bougogne Blanc by Rene Monnier shows just how good (and how quality-focussed) their whole range is. Situated in Meursault, and sourcing grapes from across the Cote de Beaune, Rene Monnier craft wines in a time-honoured style. This Chardonnay is classic white Burgundy, with soft, fresh peach flavours rounded off by the gentle inflection of some creamy and buttery oak. Despite the richness it's a light wine (and unlike many of its Antipodean counterparts, coming in at a welcome 12.5%), and one that can be matched with a variety of foods. Try it lightly chilled (about 12C) with a vegan Italian risotto, or with the richer flavours of roasted cauliflower or, quite frankly, all on its own.

The Domaine adheres strongly to sustainable viticultural practices. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.
