THE REVIEW

Get ready for the magic of the Macon, get ready to enjoy a bounty of green apple and Comice pear, and get ready for one of the best sub-$20 white Burgundies!
    The 2015 Charlet Macon-Village sings with flavor. It's not everyday that we get to taste something so good, so authentic, and so under-priced. “That's amazing!” was uttered throughout the store for weeks after we first tried it.
     The Macon may be one of the best value Chardonnay producing regions in Burgundy - it may also be one of the best in the world. It is known for its limestone soil and mineral driven Chardonnays. No oak or rich butter flavors here!
    Made from 100% Chardonnay, "La Crochette” is a hauntingly delicious little wine. It is vinified in stainless steel tanks to maximize floral notes, fruitiness, and vibrancy.
    Apple, quince, mineral tones and an undertone of citrus are all supported by a juicy focused frame of acidity. This is a classically made Macon-Villages with a finish that lasts and lasts.
     Don't be afraid to bring this humble beauty to a picnic or a five star restaurant. It pairs well with poultry, shellfish, salad or grilled fish.Read More »
