Domaine du Chateau de Messey Macon Cruzille 'Pierres Rouges' Clos des Avoueries Monopole 2021 75cl
Fairly full and rich, but not overly so, it pairs very well with langoustines, or scallops, crab on toast or any good white fish like hake or halibut.
Chateau de Messey is a new star from a special terroir in southern burgundy called 'Cruzille'. Boasting 1,000 years of history (they are mentioned in manuscripts dating back to the 9th century CE), Château de Messey is located just outside Tournus on a hilltop 300-400 metres above sea level and surrounded by woods. Owner Marc Dumont purchased the chateau complete with ancient vaulted cellars and 89ha of vines in the early '90s and the quality has sky-rocketed in the last few years. The estate is run by Fredereic Servais, named Winemaker of the Year in 2017 by Appelation Bourgogne for his work at Clos des Poncetys.
