2019 Guillemot-Michel 'Vire-Clesse, Quintaine' Chardonnay
This 7-hectare estate is located in the commune of Quintaine, regarded as one of Macon’s best villages. Pierrette and Marc Guillemot took over the Domaine from Pierrette's parents in 1985 and like Valette, converted to organics. We have only one wine from this Domaine, and it’s currently leading ‘Star Wine of the year’ (if that were a thing) for 2022. This is concentrated and energetic Chardonnay unlike anything we’ve had in sometime. It’s likely one of the best value examples from the home of the variety.
Beautifully expressive, with yellow fruits, orange blossom, smoke & flint. Thick and saline on entry, then seriously deep in the mid-palate, with suggestions of exotic fruits perfectly countered by strong minerality. This wine strikes a perfect balance between sweet and salty elements, and it shows vibrant acidity. It boasts a thickness that few other northern Mâconnais can match.
