New Burgundy - amazing values from Goubard

Robert Parker on Michel Goubard

"I have had at least 25 years of tasting experience with Domaine Michel Goubard et Fils, one of the first well-made value selections from the Cote Chalonnaise. It continues to make some of the most reliable wines from that region. I tasted three vintages of the 100% Chardonnay white as well as the Pinot Noir. Given today’s interest in lighter-styled wines, consumers looking for immediately drinkable whites that can be cellared for a few years should try these value-priced white Burgundies." -- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (June 2014)

2012 Michel Goubard Bourgogne Cote Chalonnaise Rouge...$19.99
Michel Goubard's family has grown wine in the village of Saint-Désert since the 17th century, and his sons, Pierre-François and Vincent, proudly continue the tradition of quality at this venerated Côte Chalonnaise domaine situated on Mont-Avril.
Tasting Notes: Offers plenty of bright, cherry fruit on the nose, and soft, supple tannins on the palate.   Enjoy with strong cheeses, game birds, stewed meats, or hearty baked dishes such as Shepherd's Pie.

2013 Michel Goubard Bourgogne Cote Chalonnaise Blanc Mont Avril...$19.99
"Produced in clayey limestone ground, the vines have about twenty years. We practice sustainable farming in treatment. The bottling is done by us to the field with a moderate filter. This wine is very fruity with a good balance. It is drunk on delicatessen or fish sauce." -- Winery
