Some of the finest wines of the Mâconnais come from the village of Fuissé, where Domaine Cheveau produces rich, generous chardonnay from 40 year-old vines planted into clay & limestone soils. Raised on fine lees in stainless steel, the Mâcon Fuissé balances round oppulance with taut, laser-sharp acidity.
The Mâconnais has long been associated with simplicity & value rather than greatness. In recent years that trend is reversing, although, fortunately, the great value still stands. In addition to “Les Grandes Bruyères,” which delivers well beyond its $22 price tag, we’re opening a bottle of pinot noir from Château de la Greffière this Saturday, showcasing what this dismissed portion of Burgundy is now capable of producing.
