"Unoaked Chardonnay with creamy richness and succulence allied to lifted honeysuckle floral notes, peach and apple fruit, elegant nuttiness and fine-boned acidity. A Mâcon of purity and charm from one of the less well-known villages." 88/100 Joanna Simon

Sallet is one of the maestros of fine white Burgundy winemaking and is internationally regarded for crafting exceptional Chardonnay and for developing outstanding wines from lesser-known village appellations such as Mâcon Uchizy.

The key to his success is that Sallet leaves no rock, or vine, unturned when it comes to his fanatical attention to detail. He is a strict adherent of a viticultural practice known as ‘lutte raisonnée’. Roughly translated as ‘the reasoned struggle’ it attempts to avoid the use of chemically based herbicides and fungicides. While not quite organic, Raphael Sallet consistently produces wines that leave most other Burgundian winemakers green with envy.
