Wine of the Month

top wine for October 2014

François Carillon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Macherelles 2011

Fabulous white Burgundy – the richness of flavour and texture contrasting with an exhilarating mineral tautness and brightness, seductive toasted wheat flavours and crystalline acidity. If you want to put a toe in the water before splashing out, try François Carillon's not-so-basic Bourgogne Chardonnay. £54.25 at Corney & Barrow
