Joseph Drouhin Macon-Villages
Grape Variety :
Site: a large terroir in the south of Burgundy, close to Pouilly-Fuissé. The size of this region allows considerable freedom in selecting wines with different characteristics.
Soil: clay and chalk dating from the Jurassic era are very favorable to the cultivation of the Chardonnay grape.
Plantation density: 7,000 vine stocks/hectare.
Yield: purposely low in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir.
Supply: grapes and must purchased from regular suppliers (long term contracts).
Pressing: very slow so as to respect the fruit. Juices from the last pressings are not retained.
No artificial yeasts or enzymes are used.
Type: stainless steel vats.
Length: 6 to 8 months.
Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
"The colour of the wine is bright and limpid. The nose is floral and fruity. Very straightforward and direct on the palate, as if biting into a grape. Fresh and light, with a very pleasant aftertaste".
Nature has given us splendid grapes in 2019 but little volume. These wines are gracious, delicate and full of freshness. They are typically the type of wines we will always enjoy drinking and sharing.
Temperature: 12/13°C (53-54°F).
Cellaring: 1 to 3 years
