Vincent and Isabelle Greuzard started to work with Weygandt about fifteen years ago and after one or two years let me make my own assemblage taking the oldest vines, aging about one-quarter in barrique, about one-half new. We have happily continued this tradition since, with now also a portion of the blend being barrel fermented, but always being sure to get the old vines (Vieilles Vignes). The village of La Roche Vineuse (meaning vinous rock) appropriately named for the bevy of limestone found in the vineyards, is located in the heart of the Mâconnais, and captures its true “terroir”. This lovely wine balances richness with minerality; the mid-palate and length are classic Burgundy. There are less expensive Mâcons; there may be greater Mâcons, but we feel there is no finer Mâcon for the money.
Color : Gold straw yellow.
Nose : white fruits.
Mouth: Rich and mineral wine, menthol nuances appear in the finish of tasting.
