Raoul Clerget Macon-Villages 2015 Product #31667 (In Stock)
Raoul Clerget Macon-Villages 2015 Raoul Clerget Macon-Villages 2015

Here's an early leader in the "best wine wine value of 2017" sweepstakes.  From an old, large, negotiant, it's no-oak Chardonnay from limestone soils and the fantastic 2015 vintage.  Serves up generous crisp yellow apple and peach aromas that flow onto a fresh, round, palate with accents of gravel and chalk and hazelnut.  Finishes crisp and fresh with chalk and apple flavors lingering nicely. Burgundy for party or shellfish or just a nicely roasted bird.

Dom Raphael Sallet Macon-uchizy 2015 Product #31446 (In Stock)

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 2015 Product #31059 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2015 Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2015

This is getting silly.  This wine has been the white Burgundy steal of the store for 4 years now, but the 2015 jumps up into a whole new quality tier.  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. 

Aromas and flavors feature rich, ripe, pear, apple, and peach fruit with accents of toasted hazelnut and grilled pineapple.  Full and fleshy enough to give almost any Pouilly-Fuisse a run for its money, but crisp and minerally on the mouthwatering finish.  You've got to try this stuff.

Normand Macon La Roche Vineuse 2015 Product #31277 (In Stock)
Normand Macon La Roche Vineuse 2015 Normand Macon La Roche Vineuse 2015

The newest vintage of one of our favorite Macons is once again rich and dense 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.
