White Burgundy is considered one of the finest varieties of wine, so prices can be steep. But Rob Buckhaven has found some bargain buys
1 Creamy Mâcon-Villages (£4.99, Aldi) has delicious layers of pear and hazelnuts.
Very old vintages of white burgundy wines can fetch thousands of pounds at auction.
2 Elegant Cave de Lugny White Burgundy Chardonnay (£5.97, Asda) has a greengage fruitiness.
White wines produced in the Burgundy region of France are almost always made from the Chardonnay grape.
3 Fruity Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Mâcon Villages (£6.99) delivers a melon hit.
Due to the particular mix of soils in Burgundy, the style of wine can’t be copied in other countries.
