Great Value White Burgundy for Now

Times are hard for us grand cru drinkers. Global demand has made them scarce and expensive, so we are forced to compromise for mid-week drinking. Fortunately those very high prices have allowed growers to invest in know-how and technology which, combined with a warming climate mean that serious wines are being produced from unsung appellations on the periphery of famous ones: here is a selection of delicious, ready to go whites for when you have to slum it:
