Buxy Lieu-Dit Clos de Mont-Rachet Mâcon Villages

Buxy Lieu-Dit Clos de Mont-Rachet Mâcon Villages

€26.95
 
The Clos de Mont-Rachet soils are calcareous, with high limestone content. The ground is brittle. The wine’s clear color is enhanced by the white rocks covering the vine rows and was thus named “white grounds” by the monks. Mâcon Villages is made from Chardonnay grapes. The Vinyard of Mont-Rachet is located in Savignysur Grosne at MONT RACHET. It is one of the oldest vineyards cultivated by the monks of the Cluny Abbey. At the time, each vine row had to cover an “ouvrée”, or about 480 feet (480m). Its name, “Mont-Rachet” also called “Mont Chauve” (“Bald mountain”) is a testament to the originally arid quality of the soil. This 6-hectare vineyard faces southeast. A fine light yellow color; hints of acacia with some overtones of lemon, almonds, and hazelnuts. Tasting reveals the full charm of this bottle. This wine has hints of freshness and roundedness as well as floral and dried fruit, leaving a harmonious impression.
