White Burgundy: Coche-Dury, Colin-Morey, Dureuil-Janthial,
Lafon, Lamy, Leflaive, Raveneau, Roulot & More

There are 29 white Burgundies on the list below, covering nearly all of our favorite producers of white Burgundy. 

"This is an excellent Puligny villages"
- 2021 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet

Things at Leflaive have obviously kicked into high gear.

"This is lovely and a wine that should age accordingly."
2022 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet

What makes 2022s at Tribut so exciting is how the wines combine power and presence with verve and minerality. Tribut's 2022s have an incredible amount of punch and finesse.

2021 Bachelet-Monnot Puligny

It is a really exciting villages level white Burgundy. It combines seriousness with an irresistible deliciousness that's rarely encountered in white Burgundy. 

Perennial Over-Achiever:
2022 Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc

Drouhin's Clos des Mouches is an expectation-defying wine beloved by Burgundy insiders.

Cult Chablis:
2022 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Tribut's 2022s have an incredible amount of punch and finesse.

White Burgundy Dynamite:
2014 Coche-Dury Meursault

Coche-Dury's Meursault may very well be the greatest village wine on earth. There are Grand Crus that it puts to shame.

Not To Be Missed:
2022 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon

This all-too-often overlooked bottle can deliver some serious value relative to Leflaive's other 1er Crus.

Cult Burgundy Brilliance: 2020 Anne Boisson Meursault Chevalières

Chevalières is a tension-filled, elegant, and incredibly precise white Burgundy. It has no trouble competing with the top 1er Crus.

"This is also very good for its level" -2021 Ballot-Millot Meursault

The 2021 Meursault is very impressive. It's lifted and rich with a tactile minerality. Stylistically, Ballot-Millot falls between the reductive style of Coche and Roulot and the voluptuous, oily style of old-school Meursault producers.

2021 Roulot Meursault Villages
"This is an excellent Meursault village" -Burghound

The villages designation is very deceiving. It seems like Burgundy's hierarchies based on centuries of accumulated wisdom are suspended when it comes to Roulot's Meursault Villages. It is world-class.

Punching Above Its Weight Class
2021 Bachelet-Monnot Chassagne-Montrachet

Bachelet-Monnot's Chassagne AC is a bottle that we reach for often. The 2021 is an especially thrilling vintage of the wine. As Burghound's note below highlights, the 2021 is a seriously structured example of the wine. It is also a tense and electric one.

"Impeccably well-balanced"
2020 Paul Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos St. Jean

Thierry Pillot has emerged as one of Burgundy's most talented white Burgundy producers.

Lowest Price: "Excellent for its level and recommended"
2020 Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet

Burghound writes, "the wines are always at least very good but their 2020s have that extra dimension of 'presence' which propels them to the next level."

"This beautiful effort is packed with development potential and is very classy."
2020 De Montille Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Le Cailleret

De Montille Cailleret's greatness isn't widely known, but it is consistently one of the most exciting bottles of white Burgundy that we taste.

Chassagne Magic
2020 Bachelet-Monnot Chassagne-Montrachet

Bachelet-Monnot are revelatory expressions of Burgundy.

"The balance is impeccable" -Burghound
2020 Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc

Clos des Mouches Blanc is one of the true insider wines in all of Burgundy.

Magic in Meursault
2018 Pierre Boisson Grands Charrons

The Boisson family makes Meursault exactly as we like it: intensely mineral, nervy, and with perfectly-judged richness. 

The Grands Charrons is always one of the high points of the lineup. 

In Top Form Revisited
2017 Jacques Carillon Puligny-Montrachet

The 2017 Puligny is a really beautiful vintage for the wine. It is vibrant, finely etched, and supremely elegant. It's very rare that a villages wine has this much class and sophistication.

Lowest Price: 2019 White Burgundy Sweet Spot
2019 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon

By all accounts, Leflaive's 2019s are some of the top white Burgundies of the vintage. The wines have showstopping elegance, incredible complexity, and serious cut and structure. The total package is jaw-dropping.

Hiding In Plain Sight Revisited
2018 Pierre Boisson Auxey-Duresses Blanc

Boisson's work in Auxey-Duresses has been "hiding in plain sight". Their Auxey-Duresses Blanc shows a similar tension and cut that makes their Auxey 1er Cru En Reugne so thrilling.

White Burgundy
Colin-Morey, Coche-Dury, De Moor, Lamy-Caillat, Lafon & More

"Nicely Delineated" - Burghound
2017 Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne-Montrachet

Moreau's wines are explosive, rigorously sculpted, and above all, pure. I'm always taken by their pristine high-toned gracefulness.

"This is lovely" - Burghound
2018 Lafon Meursault
