Macon Blanc Villages 2020, Domaine de Rochebin


£18.95 per bottle

Tasting Notes
Pale lemon in colour, with citrus and apple notes, a hint of white blossom and faint traces of butter. Apple and citrus predominate on the palate along with a hint of pear, finishing on a lovely streak of steely minerality. A refreshing citric acidity matches the roundness on the palate with fresh fruit flavours lingering on the palate.

Served chilled as an aperitif with hors d`oeuvres, seafood, grilled fish, white meats and goats cheese salad.

Cote Chalonnaise lies between the Cote de Beaune to the north and the Maconnais to the south. Cote Chalonnaise is made up of five communes, from north to south these are Bouzeron, Rully, Mercurey, Givry and Montagny. The Maconnais is centred around the town of Macon, and has a warmer climate than a lot Burgundy due to its southern position and proximity to the warmer Rhone valley.

The Domaine de Rochebin was created in 1921 and is jointly managed by Mickael Marillier, alongside his father Jean-Pierre, and Laurent Chardigny. The three men share the same philosophy and a common approach to their work. The vineyard as a whole is run according to the principles of sustainable cultivation.
