2019 Domaine des Niales Rhedon-Marin Mâcon-Villages Vieilles Vignes
Top Pick!
This is a charming Chardonnay from a small grower in the Mâcon. Lionel Rhedon-Marin is a graduate of the College of Viticulture in the nearby village of Davaye, where Guffens trained. All of their young-vine fruit is sold in bulk to one of the better negociants, who is pleased to have it, since Lionel is such a careful grower. But their old-vine fruit, all over 45 years of age, is kept for the domaine wine, which is charming and elegant. This is a balanced, well-made and wonderfully crisp and mineral-driven Mâcon. Only K&L's direct import makes this pric...

2019 Château de la Charrière Bourgogne Blanc
Top Pick!
Château de la Charrière is one of our most popular direct import producers and a label that easily represents the best bang for your buck we carry in Burgundy. Formerly run by Yves Girardin, the business is now run by his young son Benoit, who definitely has modernized the winemaking a bit since his first vintage in 2011. Whereas the wines were a bit funky and rustic previously, the past few vintages are much cleaner, showcasing the pureness of the Pinot Noir by de-stemming completely so as to remove excess tannic structure.

This extra brut is not nearly as dry and steely as one might expect, as it is sourced from the Hugot estate's very old massal selected vineyards in the grand cru's of Cramant and Chouilly. It is Meursault-like in its richness, with subtle pineapple notes framed by fresh baguette flavors. Don't be afraid to drink this as an aperitif! It is quite rich and broad for an extra brut!

2019 Château Vitallis Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes

There are still treasures to be found in the Mâcon, where small producers fly under the radar, and this includes Château Vitallis. In classic Burgundian fashion, the Dutron family has been growing vines since 1835, and now owns some of the oldest and best parcels in the village of Fuissé in the Pouilly-Fuissé district. Our buyers happened upon the château during a trip to Burgundy last October, and it was quite evident upon their return that they’d found something special.
