Clos des Rocs Mâcon-Loché en Charpaux 2018

Mâconnais, Burgundy, FranceFuissé's Saint-Philibert estate belonged to a family of winegrowers for 7 generations before Olivier Giroux bought it in 2002. He gave it the name Clos de Rocs, and converted the entire estate (10 ha of vineyards) to organics. Classic Mâcon as soon as you sniff this golden yellow wine, with the hallmarks of Bourgogne (French cream, light gentle lemon, fine, driving acidity), with the clues of Mâcon (a bit fuzzier around the edges, with a gently plump core). Yellow fruits lead, almond patisserie and lemon verbena kisses the core, while a solid stony mineral aspect that lingers. Drinking well now, but can certainly cellar short term.Tasted: 03 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 private wine shops Producer: Clos des RocsDistributors: Sur Lie
