When the top white wines in the world are discussed one always ends up in Burgundy. And this has a price ... especially for the wines in question. But fortunately there are some bargains out there, like this weeks wine of the week.
In Burgundy you'll find alot of wine cooperatives and wine trading companies. It can be difficult to know if they are quality driven or quantity driven wine makers, but the only way to be sure is to try the wines your self. Maison Roche de Bellene was founded in 2008 and they have several wines at Vinmonopolet ranging in price from 140 to over 2000,- nok. But we will focus on their affordable chardonnay for this weeks wine.
Maison Roche de Bellene Vieilles Vignes 2016 - 189,90.
Delicious white burgundy, Ricch and full bouquet, with hints of flowers, strawberries(!) and peach. Great minearlity and structure. Tropical fruits, ripe orange and grapefruits in the mouth. Very drinkable.
This is fine to drink by it self, but will also be perfect with a flat fish, like a dover sole with a buttery sauce.
