Region : Burgundy
Appellation : Macon-Village
Vintage : 2016
Varietal : Chardonnay
Domaine Guillot is 17 hectares of vines situated in the three villages of Cruzille, Grévilly and Chardonnay, and have two appellations: Mâcon Cruzille and Mâcon Chardonnay. Most of the vineyards are on east-facing slopes on clayey limestone soil. The various geological formations give rise to different terroirs, resulting in strikingly different wines.
The nature of the soil in Cruzille particularly brings out mineral flavours, and produces wines that need a relatively long time to mature. The vineyards in Grévilly and Chardonnay tend to have deeper soil, and produce wines that, when drunk young, are often fruitier and more flattering than Cruzille wines; however, they become more complex after several years’ ageing.
The wines from each vineyard are vinified separately, but only the best vineyards are selected for single vineyard cuvees.
Tasting Notes :
This Chardonnay seduced us by it's silly almost oily texture that makes it go down so smoothly. We appreciate a good Minerality and acidity so representative from Macon balanced by a beautiful fruit of expression of ripe apples and lemons.
It is a wine for everyday, or any meal.
We loved it !!
