Macon-Villages Vieilles Vignes Domaine de la Verpaille
Tremendous value white Burgundy, from 100 year old Chardonnay vines, grown on limestone terroir. Fermentation is long and slow started with only with natural yeasts, and there is no lees stirring. Both complex and very generous, yet fresh, floral and mineral too. An excellent wine, clean as a whistle.
