Value in Burgundy?

Update 10.7.2020(9.7.2020)billn

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:

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!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    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!

    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…
