Mmmm…. reasonably priced Burgundy. Fantasy or simply just a chore to find? A nice bottle under $25 is certainly possible to find, especially if you look outside the fabled Côte d’Or region. And that is precisely what this month’s Wine Blogging Wednesday asked its participants to do.
For those unfamiliar with Wine Blogging Wednesday, it is a virtual tasting party, where a host blog chooses a theme, and then on a designated Wednesday, bloggers from around the world post wine reviews based on that theme.
The latest incarnation of this event (the 39th such tasting) was hosted by the Brooklyn Wine Guy, had bloggers from all over the world tasting Burgundy from the Côte Chalonnaise or the Mâconnais.
Brooklynguy posted the roundup of all the wine reviews yesterday, and if you’re interested in finding some good Burgundies under $25, it’s not a bad place to start.
36 bloggers reviewed over 50 wines from these two regions and it looks like they found some winners. Check out the full list.
And stay tuned for WBW#40, coming soon.
