Mâcon-Uchizy by Meurgey-Croses | 2016
The Mâconnais is a diamond in the ruff when it comes to sourcing high-quality Chardonnay from Burgundy, and Uchizy is a premier village, prized among local winegrowers for its east-facing limestone slopes. On top of that, 2016 is a exceptional white wine vintage, one in which purity trumps fruit and oak. This gem from Meurgey-Croses drinks like a village level Meursault (no joke!) The nose tantalizes with steel-y apple and praline crunch followed by a big, delicious bowl-of-rocks finish.
