A real star from Burgundy

2012 Mâcon-Vergisson, Les Rochers, Domaine Nadine et Maurice Guerrin, Burgundy, France (£10.80, reduced to £10.25 for six bottles or £9.75 for 24, Tanners, 01743-234455, www.tanners-wines.co.uk).

I am always on the hunt for great value white Burgundy. While I try to drink from as wide a flavour palette as possible at home, Clare Valley Riesling, Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Campanian whites and white Burgundy hog the lion’s share of the space in my EuroCave.

The most expensive of these styles is white Burgundy, but because I don’t want to drop more than £15 on everyday white wine, I have to be clever about my selection.

Aside from buying top Bourgogne Blanc en primeur, Chablis sometimes works, but they often lack depth of flavour at this price. Increasingly, the Mâconnais is the place to head to for succour, not least because of its terrific soils and slightly warmer climate.

This wine is a new find for me and it is a real star. Made from one parcel of vines on top of the spectacular Vergisson escarpment, it has masses of style and more than enough grace to keep me hooked.

It is also under a tenner if you decide to place a decent-sized order. I advise you to do just this, because this is my everyday white Burgundy pick for 2014.
