Le Grappin Wines (Andrew Nielson), Peronne, Macon Village, Burgundy
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
The vineyard is a 25 year-old parcel of Chardonnay on the outskirts of Peronne, probably the best part of Macon-Villages appellation. The cooler micro-climate allows more acidity into the vines resulting in bright, fresh wines. Pressing without SO2 then chilling to settle. Very little intervention in winemaking with old barrels, stainless steel and young barrels creating a more complex & richer style. Ripe melon, stone & tropical fruits for a purity of style; juicy, tight mineral racy finish.
