Clos Saint-Pierre lies on the south-facing slopes of the Mont du Mâconnais, where soils are varied but limestone is prevalent. Due to frost, the 2021 was drawn from very low yields, gifting a wine of impressive density to match this cool vintage’s energetic drive. Harvested from 23 to 24 September, the free-fun juices fermented entirely in used barrels until the end of January. 

It’s a beautifully pitched, coiled white Burgundy, with cool stone fruit and lemon rind, giving way to a mouthcoating texture and orange and crème fraîche flavours. The beautifully tailored palate combines silky suppleness and pulsating energy, tapering to a chalk-infused finish. This would very easily slip into a tasting of more expensive wines from the Côte-d’Or.

Reviews

“The 2021 Mâcon-Charnay Clos Saint-Pierre is one of the standouts of the range this year, exhibiting aromas of citrus fruit, buttery pastry, pear, blanched almonds, white flowers and honey. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and seamless, it's a racy, nicely balanced wine that will drink well on release.”
