Dom Raphael Sallet Macon-Uchizy 2012 Product #27923 (In Stock)

Here’s a lovely white Burgundy for drinking now at a very, very, nice price.  You’ve probably never heard of the little village of Macon-Uchizy, but it’s well known in Burgundy itself.  With its east-facing vineyards, Uchizy gives wines of fine ripeness but a touch more perfume and delicacy than is often found in the Macon.  And, Raphael Sallet is just the man to capture the region’s potential in a bottle.  Sallet is relatively unknown in this country, and you won’t find much about him in the wine press either.  That’s because he’s widely respected for quality and value within France and has never had to bother to cultivate a reputation in the US.

Taste the wine, though, and you’ll know just how good Raphael is!  Aromas of ripe apple, white peach, apple skin, green pineapple and a touch of hazelnut and crushed chervil with just a touch of salty caramel hiding underneath.  Then bright and creamy textured in the mouth with clean apple, white peach, and lemony citrus fruit accented by notes of cultured butter and dried caramel.  A note of chalky mineral shows up on the back and continues on the pretty, clean and tasty, lemon/lime and peach skin finish.

Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2012 Product #28046 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2012 Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2012

We don't know much about this vigneron, but his 2012 Macon-Fuisse is a winner!  It's a rich, lusciously textured, Chardonnay that puts plenty of much more expensive Pouilly Fuisse to shame.  Generous aromas and flavors of golden apple, toasted hazelnut and fresh butter coat your mouth before juicy, crisp, apple acidity bubbles up on the back.  Just a touch of new oak gives spice and toast notes to the long, mouthwatering, finish.

Dom Thibert St Veran Bois De Fee 2010 Product #27103 (In Stock)
Dom Thibert St Veran Bois De Fee 2010 Dom Thibert St Veran Bois De Fee 2010

As Burghound said, “This is excellent” and, at the price, far more excellent still!  From just outside of Pouilly Fuisse, this beauty is rich and deeply flavored, serving up wave after wave of pineapple, apple, and yellow peach fruit framed in mouth-tingling acidity and chalky minerality.  One of the steals of our 2013 Burgundy selections – buy lots.

“Sweet Spot Outstanding. This had recently been racked and sulfur aromas dominated the nose. However there is lovely richness to the round and delicious flavors that are blessed with ample amount of dry extract that impart a seductive texture to the intensely mineral-inflected, dry, linear and solidly persistent finish. This is excellent.”Allen Meadows 89-92 points
