Pierre Andre Macon-Villages Vaucharmes 2015


SKU 03914



Founded in 1923, the firm of Pierre André was born at the foot of the hill of the grand cru Corton vineyard. Today Pierre André produces 28 Grand Cru wines, plus over 100 wines from villages all along the Côte d'Or. The overall house style is one that represents the terroir of each village and vineyard, while also exposing concentration of fruit flavors to balance the classic acidity and tannin of Burgundy. All of the grapes are handpicked by vineyard manager Jacques Briday's team, and minimal intervention is used by winemaker Mathieu Carrara.

We tasted and positively loved this Macon-Villages from the Vaucharmes vineyard. Dry, crisp and minerally in style, the citrus, white flower and mineral flavors dance on the palate with lively acidity. Macon is the younger sibling, if you will, of Pouilly Fuisse. This is an excellent example from the appellation. Serve with shellfish, lemony white fish dishes, creamy cow's milk cheeses and Marcona almonds.
