Prunier Auxey-Duresses blanc 2016

$36

The nose is gorgeous — honeysuckle, elderflower, and mango burst from an effusive bouquet. The mouth is just as rich as the nose, with a pleasant chalky minerality. With the candied lemon rind nose and smooth, low-oak mouth, this is about as accessible as white Burgundy gets.

This is the perfect choice for an after-work glass of white — round and complex but beautifully balanced, and not demanding of undivided attention. In the kitchen, pair this with something citrusy — the richness in the glass will balance out the lemon. Tuna or swordfish garnished with lemon work well, as do Mark Bittman’s scallops with basil and lemon.
