Nick Jackson MW made a suggestion for producers per village. I found some great suggestions but also some reliance on négoce wines and relatively high priced producers too:
Student asked me yesterday to suggest Burgundy producers that make classic examples of their respective villages. BUT, they also need to be SOMEWHAT affordable and available. So this is not a list of the 'best' producers, but IMO classic & accessible ones.

There’s definitely a homogeneity of pricing in Vosne, Meursault, Puligny & Chassagne that’s hard to avoid, but by going some way off the ‘beaten track‘ of producers I came up with a counter-suggestion – but what do you think? Remember I’m trying to capture ‘value’ so great quality and a good price.
PS I tried to associate producers with the village in question but be based in the same village. I made a mistake with Fougeray de Beauclair – they are based in Marsannay, not Fixin – but I had anyway included them for their Fixin Clos Marion!
There are 3 responses to “Value in Burgundy?”
Your list is better
Any idea how much of your recommended producers are accessible from outside Burgundy? I am afraid that sitting here in SoCal I might not get any of these!
winesearcher.com is your friend 🙂
FWIW, https://www.wine-searcher.com/ (just a wee nit on the url…)
Bill, Your list, for sure. In USA Bouchard can be well-priced. And why delete Bachelet-Monnot? Killing it.
Only to make a clean list, Dan, to show that there are always more options…
