The Dutron family have farmed the vineyards of the Maconnais for nearly 200 years. Their knowledge of the intricacies of the land, the grapes, and how to turn those grapes into magical wines is second to none.

They produce their Macon-Fuisse from 35-40-year-old vines with southern exposure, ensuring maximum sunshine and optimal ripening. Even better, Vintage 2022 is being hailed as a great one for all of the regions of Burgundy.

The village of Fuisse is located within the higher-profile Pouilly-Fuisse AOC. Don't get overwhelmed with the geography lesson, just realize that this wine is produced from pretty much the same terroir that Vitallis uses to produce their $30+ Pouilly-Fuisse. 

Fermented low, slow, cool and naturally in stainless steel and aged on the lees for 6 months prior to bottling, this is everything I look for in a White Burgundy. It pours a brilliant yellow-gold color and offers up aromas of white peach, lemon curd, golden apple, white flowers, and chalky minerality. Quite full and rich on the palate, it offers up loads of ripe yellow fruits on a balanced acid frame.

This excellent Chardonnay is a prime example of why the Maconnais is home to some of Burgundy's greatest white wine values.
