Domaine des Vercheres Macon Villages

2013 Macon Villages

Burgundy France


Domaine des Vercheres is a family-owned and operated estate in the northernmost part of the Macon region of Burgundy, just sough of the Cotes Chalonnaise.  The domaine passed from Andre Dupuis to his sons, Remi and Jean-Christophe, who manage the 25-acre estate.  Entirely planted in Chardonnay on favorable southeast-facing slopes at an average altitude of about 750 feet, the vines average 30 years of age.  The site benefits from a warm climate, producing ripe Chardonnay fruit  with a distinct minerality.  The fruit for the Vercheres Macon Villages is pressed and aged entirely in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks to ensure a fresh and vibrant style.  This medium-bodied white Burgundy delivers notes of crisp green apples and clean acidity that lead to a refreshing and smooth finish.  13% ABV HWG
