Domaine de LA BONGRAN Macon Clesse "Cuvee Botrytis" Moelleux 1994
Wine Region: Burgundy - France Grape: Chardonnay
Tasting notes: Some rare harvests give birth to this wine made from partially or entirely botrytised grapes, which have reached the stage known as noble rot. A rich and complex Cuvee that retains finesse and balance. Deep, warm and noble, its colour will catch your eye before prompting you to discover aromas of grapefruit and acacia honey.
About the winery: Family property, the vineyard has been passed down from generation to generation of winegrowers and stonemasons. It covers 15 hectares on the land of Quintaine. Emile then Jean and his son Gautier Thevenet, heirs to long-standing know-how, work there with the utmost respect for nature and this specific land. Here, the terroir, where the subsoil - the white marls - shows at the foot of the vines, allows the grape variety, exclusively Chardonnay, to give its full potential. It brings complexity and finesse to the wine, a fair balance between aromatic power and minerality.
