Domaine du Clos des Rocs, Macon-Fuisse, Blanches Terres 2018
Oliver Giroux bought Le Clos des Rocs as an ambitious young winemaker back in 2002. Since then, minute attention to detail in the vineyard, organic conversion and a low intervention approach in the winery has turned it into a highly respected Maconnais estate. He has 8 hectares of vines spread over 3 local appellations - Pouilly-Loché, Pouilly-Fuissé and Macon-Fuissé.
Beautifully balanced, vibrant, medium bodied white. Stone fruits, citrus and a touch of oak. Very well made white Burgundy for the price.
Offered: October 2020.
Vintage report: Plenty of rain during the winter served the vines well during a long, hot summer. The result was a high quality, bumper crop.
Drinking window: Drink now - 2024.
Food matching: Delicious with mushroom risotto or shellfish.
