Re: White wine recs:

Good points have been made. If you want white Burgundy, buy white Burgundy (hell, if you want Chardonnay, buy white Burgundy). But if you want something equally complex, structured, terroir-driven and ageworthy, buy grower Champagne from the likes of Cédric Bouchard and David Léclapart, Loire Chenin...
