Online and throughout the UK, white wine remains ever-popular with wine collectors and investors. It is, however, only the most revered white wine estates at the very top end that demand a secondary market value. These high end white wines are generally associated with cooler climates, such as northern Burgundy. Whites are often characterised as being crisp and refreshing; in fact, they can taste utterly different depending on the variety, and can be robust, oaky, buttery, aromatic, tangy, floral — the list goes on. Unlike red wine, white wine is made only from the pulp of the grape, ordinarily from grapes that are green or yellow, and is fermented at lower temperatures. Dry white wine is the most commonly produced and is derived from the complete fermentation of the wort. Sweet white wine, on the other hand, is made by fortification — cutting short the fermentation process before the grape sugars have all converted into alcohol. The vast majority of white wines are produced to be drunk within 2 years of production; however, at the top end, the kind of wines we love to buy, such as Montrachet or Corton Charlemagne, can age effortlessly for decades. We are particularly interested in Burgundian white wines from the following producers – Romanee Conti Montrachet, Coche-Dury, Drouhin Laguiche, Henri Boillot, Bouchard, Leflaive, Raveneau, Dauvissat, Comtes Lafon, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Domaine William Fèvre.
