Nicolas on 2020:
Very sunny in this growing season – we had no water – but we managed to find good maturity and good minerality. At its worst the dryness delivered us just 25 hl/ha at its best nearly 45 hl/ha – it was only the dryness that restricted our yields. All are now bottled.

The wines…

As always, some delicious wines from Nicolas.

2020 Mâcon-Verzé
Young vines 2002-2017
This is quite a sweet nose but also perfumed. Mineral, good energy, and finishing absolutely beautifully long with a fine line of pretty citrus – yum!

2020 Mâcon-Verzé Le Bien Heureux
The old-vine cuvée – on altitude so less affected by the dryness. Mainly barrel, but old barrel elevage.
Textured by a modest tannin, this is so mouth-watering and has a proper intensity of flavour. Intensely finishing too. That’s a super wine!

2020 Mâcon-Verzé Rouge
Gamay from the mid-1970s, concrete tanks with whole clusters.
A smoky side to this interesting and quite mineral nose – a suggestion of pepper in the mix. Wide, energetic, quite concentrated gamay with a small grain of tannin – delicious wine…
