This wine's clean, apple blossom scent and spring-like freshness epitomize the enjoyable, uncomplicated style of Chardonnay for which the Macon is justifiably renowned. Light, gentle but persuasive, Thevenet's Pierreclos reveals the appealing flavor of clarified butter as well as apple, mingled with a touch of lime and a certain "je ne sais quoi", which makes it go down oh…so easy.

The Bourgogne Aligoté is sourced from a 90-year-old plot of vines in Marsannay. The fruit undergoes a cold soak prior to fermentation, for which it is then transferred to neutral oak barrels. This process imparts a roundness that overlays Aligoté's traditionally firm acidity. As more and more producers are taking Burgundy's 'other white grape' seriously, it's important to know the benchmarks, and Domaine Audoin's iteration certainly falls in that category.
