Macon-Charnay Clos Saint Pierre 'Le Quartier des Girouettes'

, 2012

France Maconnais

Maconnais 75cl

This is an absolutely stunning new release at a bargain price!
From a single vineyard with tumbling walls and old vines, Clos Saint-Pierre in Mâcon-Charnay.
From the 2012 vintage with an exceptional balance of rich, creamy fruit and elegant complexity. Once the fermentation had started Samantha (the winemaker!) drew off some of the juice into a 50 hl tronconique oak cuve to finish the fermentation. Naturally wood is less hermetic than stainless steel and these large 50 hl tanks are perfect for the creation of micro cuvées – adding a touch of oxidation whilst preserving natural fruit and underlying freshness. The wine stays on its fine lees for 16 months.
The result is a pristine fresh, crisp white with citrus and stone fruits, its a touch richer than the debut 2011, has a gently creamy mouthfeel and a long nutty finish, but its the lovely peach and citrus fruit that takes centre stage. It has great balance and amazing complexity for a white Burgundy at this price. Would be great with some free range chicken, and richer fish dishes.
