Tasting Notes

We're wildlly in love with the great wines coming out of the Mâcon region these days and especially this delightful bottle. Fresh, fruited yet with a purity that only Chardonnay can deliver from a thoughtful producer such as Cédric Chêne. This is unoaked and comes from vines that are 35 years in age and are planted high up at an elevation of 280 meters.

Staff Pick Notes

An everyday white Burgundy is increasingly hard to find. Luckily wines from the Mâconnais village of La Roche Vineuse are here to save our thirsty souls. Domaine Chêne's unaoked, high altitude offerings are absolutely perfect for a weeknight dinner of roast chicken and a simply prepared side vegetable. Lovely peach and zesty citrus, racy acidity, and a touch of stony minerality make this a wine for any occasion.
