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

, 2013

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 2013 vintage with an exceptional balance of rich, gently 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 several months.
The result is a pristine fresh, crisp white with citrus and stone fruits both on the nose and palate, a gently creamy mouthfeel and a long clean finish with just a hint of nutty oak. 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.
