Staff Pick Notes

Parigot & Richard have been making methode Champenoise crémant in Savigny-Les-Beaune for five generations. Despite being Burgundy's only appellation where blending is allowed, fermentation of varietals is still done separately and all in stainless steel. Although never specified, all of their wines are single vintage expressions and time on the lees varies on the nature of each year. La Sentinelle is a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Aligote, fitting into a blanc de blancs theme. Very lithe and sleek, this wine really expresses itself with green tea, mint, and orchard fruit elements with precise, zingy acidity and a brisk energy to it that lends itself for an incredibly fresh, exuberant sipper. Crémants like this are a gem when the budget doesn't fall into Champagne territory.

Aligoté

The "other" white grape of Burgundy, Aligoté plays a struggling second fiddle to the regal white grape of the region, Chardonnay. Older Aligoté vines have been known to produce wines of high quality, displaying lovely citrusy and at times nutty characteristics - but even so, the remaining plantings of the grape are fast being uprooted to make even more space for the cultivation of Chardonnay.

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
