Andre Bonhomme Macon Villages 2020

93 POINTS WINE FRONT!

 

"A delightful glass of pure Chardonnay flavour. It’s glossy and gently creamy, but has bright acidity and flinty texture cutting through, honey, ripe lemon/lime and white peach the main flavours, and a refreshingly long finish." - Wine Front

 

"The Andre Bonhome estate was founded by André and wife Gisèle in 1956, making it the first domaine of what is now the Viré-Clessé appellation. Back then they just had four hectares of vines which they’d inherited from André’s father Joseph, who grew grapes for the cooperative in the village of Viré. The wines have always been bottled at the domaine, which now extends to 12 hectares of vineyards. These have been organically farmed since 2001 and certified from vintage 2014.

 
The fruit is from vines with an average age of 60 years on clays and limestone. The whole bunches are airbag-pressed before the musts undergo long fermentations with natural yeasts. This wine is made exclusively in stainless tanks for freshness.
 
Seamless and energetic. It’s frisky but svelte with lemongrass, citrus and white peach flavours gently melting into wet slate. There’s a hint of honeysuckle here, almost into lactose but not quite. Really, it’s just a joy to drink; it sits at the wonderful place where freshness shakes hands with charisma." - Andre Bonhomme
