Mâcon-Vinzelles
« En Paradis » 2017

A delectable wine

The cuvée

The Mâcon-Vinzelles ‘En Paradis’ is a study of fruit and freshness. It is made from a single, unique plot of Chardonnay on clay-loam soils – some of the Domaine’s oldest vines, planted in 1935.

To preserve its characteristic aromas and freshness, the wine is vinified using traditional methods for only 6 months, on its fine lies, in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats.

Tasting

The 2017 vintage of Mâcon-Vinzelles ‘En Paradis’ is notable for its bright yellow-gold hue with silver highlights. On the nose, it is elegant and delicate, with subtle aromas of white flowers and apricots.

On the palate, the wine is well-balanced and discloses notes of mandarin and grapefruit. The mid-palate is underpinned by a fine streak of minerality, and there is a nice tension on the finish, with hints of marmalade and apricot jam.

Sommelier’s
recommendation

This wine should be served at between 10-12°C and will keep for 2 to 5 years. It will pair nicely with seafood, cold meats, fish and Mâconnais goat’s cheeses.
