    WHITE WINE      
Top Burgundy domaine, with large holdings of top wines, as well as good quality 'drinkers'.
27 75cl Mercurey Blanc
'Clos Rochette'
Domaine Faiveley

AM -
A pungent nose combines notes of petrol, straw, pear and a whiff of citrus rind. I like both the volume and punch of the middle weight flavours that emanate a subtle minerality on the clean, dry and moderately complex finale. This saline-inflected effort should drink well young.
2016 £18.00 AM89
Top Maconais negociant.
RP/William Kelley -
Jean-Marie Guffens's Verget label, today superintended by the able Julien Desplans, continues to be a reference point for the Mâconnais. The best cuvées very much belong among the Mâconnais's élite, but this portfolio is also rich with terrific values to purchase by the case that would make ideal daily drinkers or by-the-glass pours.
Classy but keenly priced white Burgundy isn't easy to come by these days, so we should all be thankful for the Maison Verget. These wines come warmly recommended
    NOTE: This section lists all of the Verget wines, irrespective of their price.
3 75cl Chablis
'Cuvee de la Butte'

AM -
There is a bit more typicity to the pear, citrus and iodine-scented nose that displays a somewhat curious hint of sauvignon blanc. There is better vibrancy to the detailed and subtly mineral-inflected medium weight flavours that culminate in a saline, complex and slightly more persistent finale. This too should drink well young.
2015 £15.00 AM88
29 75cl Macon Terroirs de Vergisson
'La Roche'

AM -
A trace of residual sulphur blows off relatively quickly to reveal attractively layered aromas of honeysuckle, pear and apple. There is good underlying tension to the lightly saline-inflected medium weight flavours that possess a delicious yet entirely serious finish. This is lovely, particularly for what it is and I like the lemon-tinged finale.
2012 £14.00 AM88
29 75cl Macon -Bussières
'Vignes de Montbrison'


RP/William Kelley -
Aromas of green apples, mint, white flowers and crisp peach introduce the 2016 Mâcon-Bussières Vignes de Montbrison, a medium to full-bodied, succulent wine with excellent concentration, tangy acids and a long, chalky finish. This was cropped at around 40 hectolitres per hectare, and that shows in its depth and seriousness.
2016 £15.00 RP90
33 75cl Saint-Veran
'Vigne de Saint-Claude'


RP/William Kelley -
The 2016 Saint-Véran Vigne de Saint-Claude is another of the highlights of Verget's 2016 portfolio, offering up a classy bouquet of green orchard fruit, citrus blossom and pastry cream. It's ample, satiny and racy on the palate, with nice length and stony grip on the finish. It was impacted less heavily by hail than the Terroirs de Davayé bottling and remains quite classic in profile.
2016 £16.00 RP90
