Burgundy is one of the regions to turn to when looking for white wines capable of ageing. It is some distance away from Chablis in style and distance and produces fuller, rounded and fruitier wines. The region also provides the benchmark for judging red wines made from Pinot Noir. Ch de Miraudet Bourgogne Rouge and the Mercurey give pleasurable, straight forward drinking. Cote de Beaune from the southern half of Burgundy produces nice long lived wines but the serious interest (and money) is in the classic names of the Cote de Nuits in the north.


Domaine de Ch de Miradet has a welcoming ruby red colour evoking the soft red fruits of a classic Pinot Noir. In the mouth, the wine is full, rich and fruity. with a nice fleshy roundness and finish.

Meursault 'Les Haut Bois' is aged in oak barrels for 9 to 12 months before bottling. With a golden colour , the nose combines vanilla, butter and hazelnut aromas; in the mouth, the wine is both firm, mellow and delicate.
