Macon Pierreclos Tri de Chavigne, Domaine Guffens-Heynen 2018
The 2018 Mâcon-Pierreclos Tri de Chavigne is the fruit of three successive passages through the vines over the course of a single week, and it's showing very well, displaying aromas of buttered orchard fruits and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with terrific cut and a long, lip-smacking finish. Guffens explained that yields for this cuvée were in the region of 40-45 hectoliters per hectare, any vines that gave more being relegated to the "En Crazy."
|Score: 91/93||William Kelley, RobertParker.com (244), August 2019|
Bright pale lemon in colour. Sappy, honeyed and rich on the nose, full of ripe, fleshy stone fruits. The palate is spicy and expansive, with creamy, exotic fruit and a generous oily texture. Bright acid cuts through the richness and reveals finely etched peach and poached pear that is layered with sweet, toasted spices. Great length with a driven, spicy finish. Drink now, or over the next 10 years.
