Wine Details

The wine unfolds like a powerful red, taking hours to fully express itself. Diamond brilliant in the glass. At first sniff, lemon meringue and crushed rock piercing through a veil of yellow flower, fresh butter and beeswax. With air, a smoky pineapple note adds to the mix. Rich and fat on the attack, it finishes crystalline and pure on the palate with mouthwatering notes of racy, schist, lemony rock. Perfect yin and yang balance – this wine hits on all cylinders.

Cam Confidential

Mâcon Vergisson is a village of Pouilly-Fuissé in the south of Burgundy – think baby Puligny-Montrachet here. This Chardonnay has the richness, kiss of pineapple, and butter we love in California Chardonnay but the complexity, structure and stony minerality of fine Burgundy – in short, fantastic stuff at an exceptionally reasonable tariff. La Roche is the name of the Reys’ vineyard just below the “Rock of Vergisson” in the northernmost reaches of Pouilly-Fuissé, and it’s the highest elevation vineyard in the region.

Pale golden color. Not a lot of nose when first opened up but starts to come on in time. Bone dry finish that goes very well with rich food. I bought 6 bottles and will be interesting to see how this ages. I prefer the unusual Silex to the Rey.

Crisp and clean finish. This is my first white burgundy and I like it!

Since our club store does precious little with white Burgundies, I'm looking at this as an intro for my 2 fellow tasters who've even less experience with the genre than I. THANK you for bringing this in, Cam!
