Chapuis Macon-Mancey Blanc
These textured whites are dry, but have more body and gusto than the rest of the field. From creamy Chardonnay to ripe Viognier and much more.
Domaine François Chapuis is a small family run winery located in southern Burgundy. The estate has been managed by winemaker François Chapuis since 1997, who is aided by his mother and father, Josette and Jean. François farms 13 hectares of vineyards just west of Tournous within the lieu dit of “Les Cras”. 50 years ago these holdings were used for mixed-agriculture, but today they are fully planted to vine. Farming according to organic principles, François hasn’t used any insecticides or pesticides for 10+ years. Four times a year the vineyards are ploughed to allow the soil to oxygenate, and to generate microbial life. In the cellar François makes his wine traditionally, utilizing partial (25%) barrel ageing.
This white wine has a little richness to it that is balanced by piquant green apple and white peach notes.
