2012 Domaine Renaud Mâcon-Charnay

SKU #1135577

Once in a great while, you find wine from the Mâcon so good that when tasted blind you are forced to apply some much higher (and more expensive) appellation to it. This is such a wine. Domaine Renaud is a small domaine that produces 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, along with stainless for others. Compared to the Solutré, the Charnay is richer and more generous on the palate, with good power and weight. It is supple and charming, with some floral notes on the nose and a terrific finish. This is pure, unoaked Chardonnay. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)

Another beautiful Chardonnay from Renaud. This site is lower on the hillside, which lends to rounder green apple and pear fruit than the Macon Solutre. It still has plenty of focus, thanks to the great mineral vein and acidity present. As always, this is a tremendous deal!
