2009 Domaine Renaud Mâcon-Solutré

SKU #1060090

Once in a great while, you find wines from the Mâcon so good that tasting them blind you are forced to apply some much higher (and more expensive) appellation to it. Often, such a wine comes from hillside vineyards, with better drainage and cooler nights. This is such a wine, from the slopes below the giant monolith of rock that is Solutré. Domaine Renaud is a small Domaine, making Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé and St. Veran from 12 hectares of estate vineyards. Their cellar is modern, and they use upright ovals for many of the wines, and stainless for others. The Solutré has pronounced minerality and a charming way of making your mouth water pretty citrus notes, and a focused finsh.. Ketih Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)

The 2009 burgundys from Renaud are amazing, both in quality and price. This wine, picked from hillside vineyards and aged in stainless steel tanks, is bright and well balanced with great acidity. Fresh apple and minerality notes lead to a tasty, approachable and easy drinking wine for an affordable price.

I look forward to the arrival of the Renaud wines every year and the 2009's are fantastic. Beautiful ripe apple on the nose and palate with that great minerality coming through on the finish. I don't think there is a greater value of white Burgundy in the store.

99This 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. The ripe apple and pear fruits elegantly balance the minerality on the palate and it possesses remarkable length. This is a terrific Burgundy bargain.
