    Laurent made just four barrels of this wine from 25 year-old  vines planted in limestone-clay soils on Château-Chalon’s north facing slope. Aged for 18 months in three year old barrels during which time it was simply topped up, this wine has good weight, texture and length, typical almondy notes and finishes quite saline. For drinking now to 2022+.

    This oxidative cuvée shows just what an incredible affect just 15% of savagnin can have on overall flavour. After a year of normal fermentation and ageing in cuve, this wine was then transferred into 50 year old barrels and aged under flor for three years before bottling in April 2015. It’s by far and away the best example of this style of wine that I have tried, with a silky texture and notable terroir print on the finish. It is very complex, with floral notes, beeswax, acacia honey, walnut and almond, a good weight and subtle bitters on the finish. It’s easy to drink and has a surprising versatility with food. And it's unquestionably the bargain in our list….there aren't too many other whites in the world that will still be going strong as this in 30yrs! For drinking now to 2041.

    This vin jaune is Macle’s speciality and a profound wine of the highest class. Vinified in cuve for a year it was then transferred into old barrels and aged under flor for a further six years, where the aromas and flavours are all naturally amplified. Incredibly complex on the nose you note stewed prunes, figs, chestnut, straw, and on the attack there is an incredible tension between the richness and acidity, with the terroir for the moment slightly hidden. I wouldn’t touch a bottle until it was a minimum 10 years old – I tried a sensational bottle of the 1982 at the domaine that was still young. Very limited quantity available. For drinking now to 2100.

    Macvin is made by adding one third grape marc to two thirds grape juice. The Macle family use their own marc, which is a blend of savagnin and chardonnay and aged for six years - most marcs are a maximum of three year old. You can clearly taste the two grapes in this exceptional example (2009), chardonnay’s citrus fruits, and the richer more structured savagnin with stewed lemons and ripe grapefruit on the nose and more exotic fruit like papaya on the palate. Best chilled with desserts or simply enjoyed by itself at the end of a meal. For drinking now to 2020.
