Chardonnay - Macon-Villages - Domaine Fichet - Burgundy - France
A refreshing Mâcon-Villages with perfect balance of concentration, acidity and minerality
Run by brothers, Pierre-Yves and Olivier, Domaine Fichet has raised the quality level of their wines in recent years using a biodynamic approach in the vineyards. The terroir here is unique, a high content of white limestone in the chalk and clay. The microclimate brings extra humidity and morning fog. Now with a new winery and a general willingness to modernise their approach, the brothers' wines have continued to improve year after year. The Mâcon-Villages has a perfect balance of concentration, acidity and minerality and the Bourgougne Pinot Noir is beautifully fresh and light.
A light, fruity Chardonnay in the Burgundian style with a perfect balance of concentration, acidity and minerality. Refreshing and quaffable.
