Wine of the Week 

In the southern part of Burgundy, below the celebrated Cote d'Or, lie Cote Chalonnais and Maconnais, the later region home to the well-known yet overpriced Pouilly Fuisse as well as this light and lovely Macon Villages. The "Villages" designation, a step below Premier Cru, and two steps below Grand Cru, is bestowed upon wines made from grapes grown in and around a particular village -- in this case, Macon -- and are presumably higher quality than a regional wine or one labeled Superior. Less aromatic than the white Burgundies to the north, this soft and supple wine from the esteemed centuries-old house of Bouchard offers a floral bouquet with tart apple and mineral notes. Available at most Sav-a-Centers, Robert's Fresh Market on Robert E. Lee Boulevard and Annunciation Street, Dorignac's, Langenstein's in Metairie, and Acquistapace's Covington Super Market.
