crewcap. Terres de Pierres is a more premium version of the Mâcon-Villages previously shipped a few years back. Made entirely from free run juice, this wine comes from the most stoney, chalky soils - Terres de Pierres means Rocky soils - in Charnay (20%), Pierreclos (20 %), Bussières (20%) and Viré (40%). It was vinified 30% in older oak and 70% in horizontal stainless steel tank. Juicy and stony to the core with intense citrus and mineral aromas and flavours, a wonderful texture, and a crisp, chalky close to follow. A wonderful value white Burgundy. "A background note of unabsorbed post-bottling sulfur detracts slightly from an aromatic profile that resembles the straight cuvée of this wine. There is plenty of underlying acidity that adds a sense of verve to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess good balance and persistence. Worth considering. 88/now" Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue #48 "This wine offers a glimpse into the pure and easy to love nature of the Mâcon. Composed from parcels of grape grown on rocky soils, it's all pears, peaches and melon on the nose, really bright and ripe with gentle savoury complexity. The palate is bathed in poached peach and pear flavours - soft and smooth. There is impressive depth here, too. This really is a super wine at an excellent price."
