Outer quote mark This apple and citrus-flavored wine is crisp while also having a sense of the sun on this southern Burgundy vineyard owned by the Dutron family. The wine is perfumed with ripe acidity, with a textured aftertaste. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

Founded by the Dutron family in 1835, Château Vitallis is run today by winemaker Dennis Dutron. It is an estate of about 40 acres, including 5 acres in Macon-Fuissé. From the importer: "The estate is known for its old vines, some of which are over 65 years old. The average age is 35 years. The vineyards are situated on Southeast facing slopes at an altitude of 750 to 900 feet in the villages of Fuissé and Solutre … They use traditional methods in the vineyards and and temperature-controlled cellar. The use of stainless steel vats assures a long cool fermentation and preservation of the fruit and aromas. Aging continues in new and old oak barrels but always with a light touch."

Another great vintage from Chateau Vitallis! The 2017 delivers clean, bright drinking pleasure with gorgeous stone fruits, supple texture, and finely integrated oak. This was poured at our recent Burgundy consumer tasting and was the top pick among the white wines presented. The ideal Chardonnay to make any naysayer of this varietal into an enthusiastic fan.

Once upon a time, wine shops were filled with these classic yet casual bistro wines. However, over the last decade, I’ve noticed a lack of value driven Macon wines. But thanks to the aggressive nature of our Burgundy buying team, K&L has an amazing assortment to offer. The Macon-Fuisse from Vitallis embodies the spirit and flavor of a wine you’d pour from a carafe while feasting on a perfectly baked whole chicken with a side salad. Green apple, pear, and a touch of peach round out this clean, pure Chardonnay. This is one solid, pleasing wine.
