Domaine Sauveterre Chevrot
Jerome Guichard works around 3 hectares of old vine Chardonnay in the Maconnais. Having trained under Guy Blanchard, and making insanely good wine, he practises mixed agriculture greatly aiding the biodiversity of the region. All viticulture is organic and great care is taken to maintain the health of the vines, resulting in Chardonnay unlike any we have tried, with a liveliness and spectrum of aromatics we rarely associate with the grape.
Golden yellow in colour with preserved lemon acidity, a tension between buttery body and freshness plus a tangy mushroom-like funk and a beautifully long finish makes this a super memorable white Burgundy.
