Romain on 2019:
Not all our 2019s are bottled yet, so I have some 2018s too – but the Mâcons were largely done before the harvest. It’s a vintage where we were badly hit by frost in the Mâcons – we don’t even have half a harvest…

The wines…

Year-in, year-out, I love the consistency and purity of the wines from this domaine

Only natural cork used here.

2019 Mâcon-Chaintre Les Serreuxdières
That’s a nicely fresh nose – some attractive herb in the citrus fruit. Hmm – wide, insistent and concentrated but completely delicious. This is already in a great place – bravo!

2019 Mâcon-Fuissé Les Bruyères
Plain north-facing. Some blue-stone and schist here.
Vibrant in the mouth – I love the energy here – there’s much depth of flavour. Easy finishing but also excellently finishing – super wine.

2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Plessys
Very old vines with fine clay topsoil.
That’s got a lovely nose. Freshness and a suggestion of texture. Ooh – a lovely direct start to this mouth-watering wine, growing in intensity too. Super wine again.

2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Chevrières
Only 10-20 cm of soil before hitting the rock, all demi-muid elevage.
A compact nose again but still a nose with both clarity and interest. More overt minerality, there’s a finesse of freshness here, a top finish too – bravo!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
