WINE OF THE WEEK: Domaine Cordier Bourgogne Blanc Jean de la Vigne, Burgundy, France


£14.99, or £12.99 in a 6-bottle mix, Majestic


Seems odd that this is the first white Burgundy I’ve recommended here. I’ve homed in on Chardonnays from other regions but neglected it in its homeland. Time to put that right with the zingy candied-citrus fruit, rich buttery texture, walnut and vanilla flavours of Domaine Cordier’s Jean de la Vigne. Christophe Cordier could label this Mâcon-Villages instead of Bourgogne if he wished, but chooses not to because his wine has so much more depth, character and finesse than the average white Mâcon. Call on it to accompany fish and seafood, poultry, risotto or creamy or cheesy pasta. It would make any fish pie sing.
