Mâcon-Bussières 2016 - Domaine Sangouard-Guyot

This unusual Mâcon appellation comes from the small village of Bussières, right at the edge of the Pouilly-Fuissé area. The location, and the ageing in oak barrels, could explain why it tastes more like a Pouilly-Fuissé than a classic Mâcon-Villages! Its first nose is rather fruity, leading to fine mineral fragrances. Great balance of flavours in the mouth between liveliness and a generous roundness. It remains a "simple" wine for any occasion, but with a little more complexity, especially if you like slightly oaked Chardonnay.

Saint-Véran is one of the appellations of the Maconnais in South Burgundy, it is a lovely Chardonnay with a mineral nose of white fruit, flowers and a touch of citrus. The wine is rich and round with a perfect balance between freshness, intensity and the aromas of ripe fruits. Definitely a great Saint-Véran, ready to drink today and worth every penny!

This typical terroir brings minerality, balance and power to the wine and the ageing in thermo-regulated tanks preserves its elegant and silky fruit aromas. A fantastic Pouilly-Fuissé praised...

This second Pouilly-Fuissé comes from one of the best plots of Vergisson: “Ronchevat”, a 50 year-old vineyard planted on clay-limestone soils. Mindful of traditions, Pierre-Emmanuel leaves this cuvée in oak barrels as his ancestors used to do. The result is a full-bodied wine with toasty and buttery notes, aromas of white flowers and exotic fruit,...
