- Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2013 Product #28945 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert ferments and ages his ripe Macon-Fuisse Chardonnay fruit in large, old barrels called foudre. These big barrels (each holding about 10x the typical barrique) provide his wine with just enough air contact to smooth off rough edges without adding any wood flavor or tannin. In 2013, this wine just sings. Generous aromas and flavors of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apple, toasted hazelnut and fresh butter coat your mouth before juicy, crisp, apple acidity wells up on the back. The texture and flavors are wonderfully rich – very Pouilly-Fuisse-like – and retain fantastic precision and vibrancy due to bright, juicy, citrusy, acidity. An absolute steal in drink-me-now white Burgundy Chardonnay at the regular price.
- Normand Macon La Roche Vineuse 2013 Product #29276 (In Stock)
A rich, dense, Macon with fine length and a very satisfying finish.
"The 2013 Mâcon La Roche Vineuse Blanc comes from ten hectares of 30-year-old vines and was raised entirely in stainless steel. It has a light fresh pear and apple-scented bouquet that unfolds nicely in the glass. The palate is clean and fresh with light citric notes on the entry, but it is very linear toward the finish. This is a discretely classy Macon."Wine Advocate 89 points
