One of the top requests we get is for delicious white Burgundy under $30 per bottle. Coming from a single hillside hugging vineyard just up the road from Meursault, the Auxey Duresses Blanc from Agnes Paquet simply hits it out of the park.

This is the white Burgundy you can open without feeling guilty - you don’t need to age it for years in the cellar, just pop the cork and enjoy…… but of course it will taste great for another 2-3 years no problem if you want to stock up.

Agnes’s grandparents and beyond had been winemakers, but her parents decided to rent the vines out and take up another metier (profession). When they considered selling the vineyards in the late 1990s,, Agnes decided to take over the vines herself. The biggest holding of the domaine is a single four hectare vineyard in Auxey Duresses. It’s rare to have such a large holding in Burgundy, and it allows the Paquet wines to have a singular delicious identity - think the baby Meursault with a slightly higher elevation kick.

The style is ultra-classic  - we’re talking a delicious old-world Chardonnay with tart green apple acidity and a very light touch of oak that brings the whole thing together.

Open recklessly and enjoy to the fullest with a vegetable quiche, grilled fish, poached chicken or any other light dishes.
