Mâcon-Verzé "les Chênes" from two parcels south-west facing and a Mâcon-Verzé "Le Monté" located above the hamlet of Escolles on a plateau rich in flint. These cuvéesof Mâcon-Verzé are matured in a combination of stainless steel and concrete vats to which we add about 10% of at least one year old oak barrels in order to express the complexity of these soils.
91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A racy style, this exhibits lime blossom, apple and citronella notes on a lean frame. Intense, with vivid acidity driving the long, stony finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported." - BS (Aug 2020)
89 Points - Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"This is aromatically similar to the Verzé save for being slightly more floral. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is also quite supple and round and while there isn't quite the same energy, the finish is a bit tighter while offering a whisper of minerality and overall, this is slightly more interesting."
