Always a K&L favorite, and nothing has changed with this vintage. This is a small domaine, with only 12 hectares, with vines growing in the Macon, Pouilly-Fuisse, and St. Veran. All of their wines are good, and deserving of your attention, but I can only write about one, and this has consistently been my favorite since we first imported them.. This wine hails from the higher hillside vineyards under the monolith Solutre. These vineyards tend to be steeper, have better drainage, experience cooler evenings and most importantly tend to have more chalk in the soil. As you would expect this is a wine with more focus and cut with a pronounced mineral vein. They work predominately with stainless steel and large German foudres, to maintain purity of fruit and expression of terroir. The ripe apple and pear fruits elegantly balance the minerality on the palate and it possesses remarkable length. This is a terrific Burgundian bargain.
