This has become a surprising customer favorite!

2023 Comte de Langeron Coteaux Bourguignons Blanc...$25.99
90% Chardonnay
10% Aligote
Great white Burgundy at a great price!
A blend of Chardonnay and Aligoté of which most is matured in stainless steel. It has a great Burgundy nose with a touch of minerality that comes from the Aligote. Great flavors of tart apples and a steely acidity finishes off this great wine. Highly recommended and very limited production
Nice pale robe, the nose is discreet yet intense with hints of white flower and honey. The wine expresses minerality and length on the palate with a nice balance of acidity on the finish.
This wine is a free blend of the two main white varietals of Burgundy: Chardonnay and Aligoté. The berries are sourced from different parts of the Burgundy region characterized by a large variety of different soils. Both grapes are vinified separately and blended before bottling, which gives them more control on the typicity of this wine.  This is a great aperitif wine but it also pairs well with pasta, cured meats, pork, chicken, rich fish like salmon and tuna as well as soft, mild cheeses.

This appellation, Coteaux Bourguignons, was created in 2011 covers red, white, and rosé wines, grown over four départements. The Coteaux Bourguignons appellation covers wines that can be blended or come from a single varietal, and which can use some more old-fashioned varietals. Production of white is very small from this area and most of them do not leave France.
