One of our best value drinkers on the list. Peachy, approachable yellow fruit flavours and a bright palate make for a charming wine. This is a bona fide Goedhuis favourite, and a wine we have been buying for decades. The 2017 is just the latest example in a long line of delicious, great value white Burgundies from this estate.
Lying to the south of the Cote Chalonnaise and the north of Beaujolais, the town of Macon gives its name to wines produced from vineyards scattered among the surrounding villages. The climate is warmer than the Côte d'Or giving wines greater exposure to sun, less rain and reduced risk offrost. The vast majority are fresh, approachable whites made from Chardonnay. Reds and roses are also made principally from Gamay and a tiny amount of Pinot Noir. A quality level up from basic Macon, a total of 43 villages have the right to use the Macon-Villages appellation or to add the name of their village (e.g. Macon Montbellet) to the appellation name.
