I am loving the white Burgundy values that have been rolling in. Our last value-driven offering flew out of all K&L locations but fear not - our buyer has this one lined up and ready to purchase. This is absolutely delicious with notes of bright citrus and green apple, it's mineral-driven and exceptionally fresh. Rent a u-haul and fill it up before I drink all of this one too.

Another incredible value! Fresh apples, orchard fruits and saline aromas with a vibrant palate of spiced apples, lemon zest, citrus oil and hazelnut flavors. The finish is long and smooth with layer-upon-layer of fruit unfurling till the very end.
Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2022

Beautifully floral, this lovely little wine immediately pulls you in with one of the most expressive noses at this kind of price point. Immediately I pick up notes of stone and orchard fruit with a hint of orange candy and light cream. The palate opens with crunchy apples and a slight note of petrol which bring thoughts of Riesling without the peach. I taste the minerality more towards the back end as the acid makes your mouth water. If you blinded me and asked me to guess the price of this, I would easily overbid by a good margin!

Aromatically expressive this pretty little Macon captures your attention immediately with white flower aromas like orange and lemon blossoms, then on the palate it bursts with deep flavors of orchard fruit like Mirabelle plum, Asian pear and Golden Delicious apple, with lovely hints of slightly toasted hazelnuts. It's traditional, easy to drink Macon wine, supple and textured, yet fresh and vibrant.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
