90 point White Burgundy under $15

Always been one of our favorites, good to see the new vintage get some great press!

2012 Cave de Lugny Macon Lugny Les Charmes...$13.99
The 2012 Macon Lugny Les Charmes comes from 40-year-old vines on chalky soil. It has an attractive bouquet of apple-blossom and lime flower that is very well-defined and expressive with hints of Alpine stream and a touch of almond in the background. The palate is well-balanced with tangerine and orange zest on the entry, leading to some attractive honey notes toward the rounded, generous finish. Although it needs a little more tension to carry it off, this is an admirable Macon.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
