The Greatest Ever?

Within Burgundy, the Chardonnay growing region of the Mâconnais is home to some of the best value Chardonnays.

Green apple, quince, Comice pear, and citrus are all supported by a juicy focused frame of acidity in the stunning 2018 Clos de Rocs Macon-Loche.

Add a vintage that may very well be the finest in over five decades and you have one heck of a combination for white Burgundy fans.

There are whispers that Burgundy 2018 could become one of the region's all-time great vintages... The word in the region, at least in public, is that Burgundy 2018 is one of the greatest ever vintages. Decanter, Tim Atkins

The district of Macon-Loche (within the Maconnais) is known for its limestone soil and white wines with secondary notes of lemon rind and oyster shells. Therefore,  pair with grilled halibut, grilled prawns, or just as easily with your favorite salad. 

Like all well made whites, we suggest enjoying this Chardonnay on the warmer side of cold to allow the vibrant fruit to shine. 

Enjoy!

THE MERCHANT'S MARK

93 / 100

2018 is another stunning Macon value from Clos des Rocs. Green apple, quince, Comice pear, and citrus are all supported by a juicy focused frame of acidity. Wonderfully textured, this is a classically made Macon with a tangy, zesty finish. A refreshing white with secondary notes of lemon rind and oyster shells. Tangy and textured, it is simply stunning!
