Bonhomme, Macon-Villages, Vieilles Vignes, 2019
The estate was founded by André and wife Gisèle in 1956, making it the first domaine of what is now the Viré-Clessé appellation. The fruit is from vines with an average age of 50 years on clays and limestone. The whole bunches are airbag-pressed before the musts undergo long fermentations with natural yeasts. This wine is made exclusively in stainless tanks for freshness.
Vines are over 50 years old, aged only in stainless steel. A delightful glass of pure Chardonnay flavour. It's glossy and gently creamy, but has bright acidity and flinty texture cutting through, honey, ripe lemon/lime and white peach the main flavours, and a refreshingly long finish.
