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.
