French Whites

France makes more great wine and in greater variety than any other country in the World. It also defines, classifies and and controls them in more detail and has a longer history of doing so than anywhere else. This is as true of white wine as red. The white wines in particular of Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Loire and the Rhone are outstanding.

    I had a bottle of the 2016 Domaine du Bicheron Mâcon-Péronne, Cuvée Vieilles Vignes only last night with a plate of Mrs Ray’s pitch-perfect chicken risotto and — goodness me! — it hit the spot. FVD’s Esme Johnstone tells me that it’s their best-selling burgundy by miles and I’m not in the least surprised. Produced from old vine Chardonnay by Denis and Geneviève Rousset, whose family have been making wine in the village of Péronne, also near Mâcon, for almost 130 years, it sees not one splinter of oak and is as crisp, clean and pure as they come. It’s rounded and textured with an underlying citrus freshness and a fine mineral core. It’s a class act for sure and — I don’t care what you say, such things matter, especially when it comes to showing off to the neighbours at Christmas — the bottle looks dead pukka too. £12.45 down from £12.95.
