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

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 Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Product #24753 (In Stock)
Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008

Everything takes a big step up in this single vineyard wine from one of Thibert’s two best sites.  The Burghound review captures this well – rich, complex, and loaded with driving minerality.  Outstanding

“Moderate wood doesn't detract from the otherwise fresh, bright and expressive nose that offers up white orchard fruit aromas, subtle spice hints and floral notes that precede rich, sappy and admirably pure flavors that possess plenty of acid buffering dry extract and excellent length as well as notably more complexity. Sweet Spot/Outstanding”Allen Meadows 89-92 points

Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Les Champs 2009 Product #25975 (In Stock)
Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Les Champs 2009 Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Les Champs 2009

Arguably Christophe’s top wine, this single vineyard  Chardonnay includes a slug of super-concentrated fruit from 100 year-old vines.  There are currently no 1er Cru designated vineyards in Pouilly Fuisse – although Christophe is leading the fight to create a classification – but this is absolutely 1er Cru quality and every bit equal to top Cote de Beaune 1er Crus that cost twice as much.

“A distinctly ripe nose of peach, white flower and orange peel gives way to round and very rich medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that confers a textured quality to the notably intense and relatively dry finish. Solid quality here.”Allen Meadows 89-91 points
