Tasting Notes

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: 91/93William Kelley, (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.
