Description

This is a relatively new domaine, having been created in 2008. The Gondard family have been ensconced in the Mâconnais village of Viré for centuries and have been vine growers since 1981. Until 2007 they were selling their grapes to the local co-op buy came to realise that their parcels of vines produced grapes of such good quality that they deserved to be vinified separately and so created their own domaine and started to vinify and bottle the wines themselves.

The wine shows the typical richness of mâconnais wines but also a surprising level of elegance and minerality.

TASTING NOTES

Lovely white Burgundy with notes of citrus, exotic fruits and white flowers. Hawthorn & acacia on the nose with pine & quince jam appearing after ageing. Lively & fresh, a little sharp yet still round

FOOD PAIRINGS

Serve this Burgundy with scallops, shellfish, seafood or chicken in a cream sauce
