Sticker shock and availability are what you may be looking at, when it comes to finding a white Burgundy. Top two reasons? 1. The best of the best are not easy to find, and 2. prices for top white Burgundies can easily start at $75. a bottle, and go well up from there.

Once you spend a minute grasping these numbers, it sort of all comes together. Burgundy--as a region--produces very little wine. And, many of the producers there are also very small, some making as little as twenty five to fifty cases a year of the particularly exceptional white Burgundies, in any given year. And to be noted, this amount must supply the needs of the entire planet's wine consumers!

White Burgs are some of the most sought-after wines in the world. This conclusion may be drawn, that the best Burgundies--both red and white--are always tough to come by, and probably pricey as well. (Without getting into premier and grand crus right now, the names to seek out are Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Chassagne-Montrachet.)
