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

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.

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.

Chanson Pere Et Fils Vire Clesse 2015 Product #32296 (In Stock)
Chanson Pere Et Fils Vire Clesse 2015 Chanson Pere Et Fils Vire Clesse 2015

Good value in white Burgundy is all too hard to find these days, making this classy, stylish and very fresh Chardonnay from the Maconnaise AOC of Vire-Clesse very exciting indeed.  It's from what is arguably the best part of the Macon, a cooler site with more limestone and more than a little in common with the Cote d'Or to the north.  Chanson was among the very first to bottle AOC Vire-Clesse following its creation in 1988 and makes one of the most classic examples - ripe, rich, and dry.  In 2015 there's just a touch more depth, richness, and power than usual, making this a joy to sip and a stunning match with scallops or lobster.

"Very pure, this white delivers expressive aromas and flavors of peach, apple, spice and oyster shell. Lingers on the finish, with elements of spice and brown butter. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 91 points

Dom J-C Thevenet St Veran Clos De l'Ermitage VV 2015 Product #32248 (In Stock)
Dom J-C Thevenet St Veran Clos De l'Ermitage VV 2015 Dom J-C Thevenet St Veran Clos De l'Ermitage VV 2015

Saint Veran lacks nearby Pouilly Fuisse's fame, but the wines can be even better (and better value).  This is from 70 year-old vines in a fine "monopole" vineyard on south-facing slopes of chalky, limestone, soil.  At once  zesty and rich, there's nice weight  on the palate and layers of orchard fruits, hazelnut, butter and wet stone.  Finishes long, deep, and very refreshing with fruit and nut notes lingering.
