Mâcon-Villages 2016 - Albert Bichot


Wines from the Mâcon area usually offer very good value for Burgundy whites, without being as expensive as the rest of the region. This Mâcon-Villages has a typical Chardonnay nose of citrus, stone fruit and flowers and is slightly oaked - 20% of the wine has been aged in oak for 8 months. It boasts just enough complexity to start being sophisticated, particularly for a Mâcon. In short, a great white and be the perfect fit to a white fish.

85/100 "The Mâcon Villages, which sees 20% matured in barrel, has a well-defined, quite austere, wet stone-scented bouquet that is tinged with bell pepper. The palate is balanced with light, crisp green apple, pear and a touch of spice towards the finish. Par for the course." (previous vintage)
