Domaine du Chateau de Messey Macon Villages Les Chouettes 2020 75cl
Tasting Note: A brilliant wine - just a hint of oak, then all those lovely Chardonnay fruit flavours.
Producer: 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.
