About Other White White Wine

About Other White White Wine
Other white wines from Burgundy include moderately priced wines such as those from the Cote Chalonnaise, such as Rully and Montagny as well as famous appellations such as Corton Charlemagne and Puligny-Montrachet. In the middle of these wines, style-wise, are Chablis.

What these wines have in common is that they are all produced entirely from Chardonnay. The lighter versions have very good acidity with bright pear and melon fruit, Chablis is a very mineral-driven, almost flinty edge, while the more famous whites are full-bodied with explosive ripe pear and buttery fruit with a distinct creamy, nutty quality. The more humble Burgundy whites should be consumed within their first five years with lighter seafood, while the best examples of Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet and it silk can age for 25-30 years and can stand up to lobster, swordfish and even veal.
