Superb white Burgundy

"As a big fan of white Burgundies, I can say that this has been a revelation. Wonderfully fresh and balanced."

"I thought I didn't like Chardonnay until I tried this - nothing like I expected! Absolutely delicious and will order more."

Denis Bouchacourt is something of a maverick in his small, high quality vineyard in one of Burgundy's most well known regions. The grapes come from three plots in two distinct areas - two are on the Solutré rock and the other, surrounded by the vines of Pouilly Fuissé. No chemicals and no pesticides are used and all the work on the vines is carried out by hand in this beautiful, low intervention vineyard. The must is left to ferment until all the sugar has turned to alcohol, which means there is no residual sugar left in the wine - just the full flavour of the terroir - the land where it is made. No oak and no filtration. Entire production sold out before harvest and we are delighted to have an allocation for this wine.

Bright, golden yellow with an elegant tropical fruit, peachy, pear nose. A fresh mineral attack on the palate, filled with complex, ripe lychee, apricot and dried fruit character. A delicate mineral finish with well-balanced fruit make this a stunning example of the region.

About the vineyard

Denis Bouchacourt is something of a maverick in his small, high quality vineyard in one of Burgundy's most well known regions. The grapes come from three plots in two distinct areas - two are on the Solutré rock and the other, surrounded by the vines of Pouilly Fuissé and have a reputation for excellence both locally and internationally. He will not submit wines for awards - as he has no need. All of the wine is reserved in advance of the harvest.

Incredible Macon - best in show

A spectacular wine which punches well above its weight. Such good value for a wine of this superb quality. My wife gets cross when we run out!

Love this review! Drinking so beautifully at the moment - it really is a stunning example of the terroir, made by a grower we have worked with for almost 20 years - never fails to disappoint...!
