The words "bargain" and "Burgundy" rarely go together, and it is a stretch to call a $37 bottle of wine a bargain in the first place. Domaine Pierre Morey is able to put these ideas together and offer a true value on his intro level Bourgogne Blanc. The wine is made of declassified fruit from Meursault, with all the vines planted in 1977. His regular Village level Meursault is twice this price, but with the Bourgogne you are getting theme fruit for a much lower price.
The wine is full, elegant and truly gives you "the Meursault experience." It has all the mineral and fruit you would expect of the region from which it comes. Try it with gently cooked Copper River salmon with a sauce of English peas, shallots, wine and a touch of cream...or a little cheese is always great.
Tomme de Crayeuse
Tomme de Crayeuse was invented in 1997 by Max Schmidhauser in the Savoie. Crayeuse is the French word meaning chalk, which refers to the center of the cheese itself. The outer part of the cheese closest to the rind can be quite liquid and creamy. The flavor is somewhat rich and earthy with a citrus note in the finish. Enjoy with a glass of wine.
