JOSEPH DROUHIN Saint-Véran 2014
(Saint-Véran, Burgundy, France) $19
Come December, just about every wine-drinking household needs a good “winter house white.” Something with a little body, but something that’s still refreshing. Something that will satisfy (even impress) friends who drop in. But something that is definitely not a splurge (after all, you’re probably going to drink a bunch of it). Here’s that wine. A snappy, minerally, simple white Burgundy (100% chardonnay) from the old negociant house Joseph Drouhin. It’s not oaky. It’s not a butterball. It’s not opulent. It’s just plain good, and you won’t regret having a lot of it on hand.
