For outstanding Burgundy that offers value too, head straight for the Mâcon and this superb 4th generation estate. Fruit from the 30 year old vines, a slow fermentation and lees stirring add up to a rich creamy fruit style with impressive complexity.
Southern Burgundy’s Mâconnais has long been known for being a hotspot for good value but in the last decade its winemakers have proved that this goes hand in hand with remarkable quality too. They may not be able to put ‘Grand Cru’ on the label, but some of the bottles certainly warrant it. The Greuzards have been crafting superb wines at their Greffière estate for four generations now. In fact there is evidence the property was making wine from 1585. Their top vineyard – La Roche Vineuse – is 12 hectares with vines 30 to 50 years old. No wonder the fruit is so deliciously concentrated and long. Slow fermentation with lees stirring results in this rich complex style. Serve lightly chilled with white meats, risotto or a creamy fish dish.
"Excellent example of a white Burgundy. Holds up well with food. Drinks like a more expensive wine"
