He now owns eighty-eight ares of vines in the lieu à dit of Verchère in the village, with the youngest vines in this parcel now a bit over twenty-five years of age, so these are hitting their stride as they come into what the French call un bon age. The wine is raised in foudres, like most of the other Mâconnais level bottlings here and the 2018 offers up a fine nose of pear, nectarine, almond, a lovely base of chalky soil tones, spring flowers and a whisper of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and nicely plump at the core, with good acids and grip, a fine signature of soil and a long, juicy and complex finish. Lovely juice. (Drink between 2020-2030)
