This white Burgundy may only have humble ‘Bourgogne’ on the label, but it tastes much loftier than that. From a family estate based in Meursault, this white has richness, depth and longevity enhanced by a barrel fermentation and ageing in new oak.
"An exceptional vintage. It is hard to imagine anyone being disappointed with the 2015s"
If you’ve ever enjoyed a richly textured Meursault, you will love this more affordable alternative. Father and son Thierry and Pascale Matrot can trace their family wine heritage here back to the 19th century. Their splendid Bourgogne Blanc stands out from the crowd as it is made from the rich fruit of old Chardonnay vines near the leading village of Meursault. Furthermore, it was aged in French barrels, a fifth of which were brand new. It gains extra richness too from bâtonnage, the traditional technique of stirring the wine on its lees. The result is a fine wine of great freshness, fruit and minerality. It’s lovely now yet will develop more complexity if cellared for a year or two. Ideal with terrines or sauced chicken and fish dishes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
