Thevenet-Quintaine Macon-Villages 2016

Chablis and Macon are two of the best-value white Burgundy. One reason for their wonderful value and price ratio is that the vast majority are produced without any oak contact (a new French oak barrique forwhite wine costs around US$600). Macon and Chablis also provide the beginner
and true wine lover the best possible lesson in white Burgundy. Without oak, these “unplugged” whites help us focus and understand what pure Chardonnay tastes like. Thevenet-Quintaine is a famed Maconnais producer. Father Jean and son Gautier are also owners of Domaine de la Bongran in Vire Clesse. Ripe appley with a delicate smokiness. Medium-plus-ish bodied, balanced, and with freshness on the finish.
