One of our best value drinkers on the list. This is a bona fide Goedhuis favourite and a wine that we have been buying for decades. The 2018 is yet another accomplished example from this Burgundy estate. It has fresh and ripe stone fruit flavours and a bright, creamy palate. Delicious.
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.
