- Normand Macon La Roche Vineuse 2014 Product #29694 (In Stock)
A distinct step up from the very fine (WA 89 point) 2013, this is a rich, dense, Macon with fine length and a satisfying finish. From 30 year-old vines and made entirely in stainless steel, it shows rich pear and apple scents that get richer and broader with air. Clean, fresh, flavors of pear, apple, and lemon curd flow easily into the bright, pure, finish. A very fine white Burgundy value.
- Dom Sangouard-guyot Pouilly Fuisse Terroirs 2014 Product #30892 (In Stock)
Pierre-Emmanuel Sangouard took over from his grandparents and wife, Catherine's, parents in 1997 and is quietly establishing himself as a winemaker to watch in Burgundy's Macon. This is his "basic" Pouilly-Fuisse, all Chardonnay from several sites, harvested by hand, raised in steel, and allowed to go through malo for richness and balance. Lemony and fresh with a nice, long, generous finish. Very fine value here.
"Intriguing nose offers peach, honey and spices plus a building note of smoky silex. Larger-scaled than the Mâcon-Vergisson and Saint-Véran, conveying an impression of sucrosité leavened by rocky energy. Boasts lovely concentration and firmness; not quite metallic but not a pliant or supple style despite its density." Vinous (Tanzer) 89 points
