2012 Joseph Drouhin Rully, Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy

( £14.99 down to £11,25, 12.5%, Waitrose )

2012 was on the smallest vintages on record in Burgundy, but quality was high, even in “lesser” regions, such as the Chalonnaise. This lightly oaked, harmonious Chardonnay is fresh and crisp, with notes of nutmeg spice and citrus peel and a tangy, chalky undertone. Great value. And it will age well, too.
