2015 Macon-Peronne (Gandines, Domaine des)

Domaine des Gandines, Macon-Peronne Blanc, Burgundy, France 2015

{biodynamic} 100% Chardonnay

FULL & FLAVORFUL, LEMON, HAZELNUT, CARAMEL. SERIOUS!

Gandines really surprised us with this compelling, and serious White Burgundy. Fully ripe and lush, but with juicy acidity and complex minerality. This kind of power usually comes from the big boys north of the Macon in the Cotes de Beaune. Aged in enormous 3000 liter old oak barrels that soften the wine without giving it any oak flavor, it is possibly the most impressive Chardonnay available at this price!

Serving Suggestion: Steamed or raw oysters. Black sea bass poached in olive oil with fresh thyme. Roast turkey with truffles or chanterelles.

2015 Viré-Clessé (Gandines, Domaine des)

Domaine des Gandines, Viré-Clessé, Macon, Burgundy, France 2015

{biodynamic} 100% Chardonnay

PRETTY, RIPE, COMPLEX & FOCUSED. LIME, OAK & STARFRUIT

Recently transitioned to biodynamic farming from organic, this 4th generation tiny estate makes truly amazing white Burgundy from chardonnay vines up to 90 years old. Robert Dananchet and his son Benjamin are making rich but balanced wines from southern Burgundy’s best up-and-coming appellation, Viré-Clessé. Aged in 3000 liter tuns, the wine picks up a subtle oak hint, but the minerally fruit is really the focus. Highly recommended!

Serving Suggestion: Rich enough for pork chops, but classically suited for fresh fish with a cream sauce. Also, a fresh chevre salad with walnuts, avocado and tangerine slices.
