Mâconnais & Côte Chalonnaise Wine

When we wrote the 2022 list, prices and demand in the Côte d'Or were already reason enough for canny lovers of Burgundy to look further south to both the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais - this rationale has been turbocharged with the short 2021 vintage.

Eric Saveret's 4.7 hectare Domaine Roncevaux - acquired from his father-in-law in 2004 - is a reliable source of characterful, terroir-focused Chardonnay. Farmed organically and using indigenous yeasts, Eric's Pouilly-Fuissé wine from the Premier Cru of 'Sur La Roche' is very much worthy of its newly acquired Premier Cru status (from the 2020 vintage). From 40 year-old vines on limestone soils, it has nutty, orange peel aromas with a round, full palate balanced by fine minerality and long finish.

Based at Domaine de Fa in Beaujolais, the Rhône-based Graillot brothers' first foray into Burgundian Chardonnay is predictably accomplished. Their Saint-Véran is saline, mineral-driven and savoury with a persistent finish. Produced in tiny quantities, it is well worth snapping up when available.

Our usual listing from the Côte Chalonnaise has had to miss the 2021 vintage – Domaine Bruno Colin sadly made no Premier Cru Rully due to frost damage and mildew. We look forward to its return in 2024.
