In the chalky hills of southern Burgundy, “the best Saint Vérans are far superior to the majority of Pouilly Fuissés” (Robert Parker). This fine white from an outstanding domaine has a lively, appley freshness in perfect harmony with its gentle oak.
"Luscious white Burgundy with green apple freshness, and all at a sensible price. Perfect"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for Burgundy
If you love luxuriously rich white Burgundy but at a sensible price, this is an excellent choice. Founded as recently as 1986, Domaine des Deux Roches is one of the leading estates in the Mâconnais, a region renowned for “white Burgundy that’s not only good but affordable” (Joanna Simon). The property, owned by Jean-Luc Terrier and Christian Collovray, includes some of the area’s best vineyards, coupled with a modern winery to capture the essence of their fine terroir. Their Rives de Longsault vineyard has chalkier soils than many in Saint Véran, helping to produce particularly intense flavours. With gentle toasty oak in perfect harmony with the rich creamy apple fruit, this white Burgundy is superb with roast pork, chicken or fish dishes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

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
