Many of you will know that Villa Blanche is our top tip if you’re looking for a great value alternative to Burgundy. It’s made by Laurent Calmel and Jérôme Joseph in the Languedoc and over the last decade has won numerous awards, including a top spot in the ‘Chardonnay du Monde’ competition. Partially aged in oak barrels, it’s a rich and creamy style that rivals many Burgundy that go for twice the price. Elegantly fragrant with aromas of peaches, nectarines, vanilla and almond. With a silky texture and a lingering, fresh finish, it’s perfect with creamy pasta or fish pie.
