Domaine Bertagna Premier Cru Vougeot Blanc 1999

This was a lovely little wine.  Expect a fresh smelling aroma of light honey and sweet nectarines.  And good length and some apple like notes on the palate.  Well stored examples will be worth seeking out, because it's only $50 in the secondary market.  A happy example of an affordable white Burgundy with 12 years of age on it.  91 points (7.6/10)

Abv: 13.5%
Price: around $50
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
