Bret Brothers La Soufrandière Mâcon-Vinzelles 2016

Maconnais, Burgundy, FranceSince arriving on the Burgundy scene in 2000, the limestone-sculpted wines of the brothers Jean-Philippe and Jean-Guillaume Bret have garnered much acclaim. From 40 year old vines at 200m altitude, this parcel is a recent addition to Bret Brothers' holdings. In 2014 they were able to purchase this 12 acre parcel adjoining their iconic Clos de Grand-Père. Historically, this had been an integral part of the Clos, but was detached during legacies of the early twentieth century. This was the last vintage of the organic / biodyanmically farmed wine solo, before it joined into Clos de Grand-Père for the 2017 vintage. This spend nine months in older oak prior to bottling. Ripe white cherry, pear, is brightened with shining lemon, grapefruit pith along a plump, lees-lined, medium+ bodied palate.Tasted: 02 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 50.00 private wine shops Producer: Bret BrothersDistributors: Liquid Art Selections
