Le Clos Manciat-Poncet Bourgogne rouge 2017
5 in stock
2017 Le Clos Manciat-Poncet Bourgogne rouge is full of delicacy and elegance, this Bourgogne rouge is brimming with red fruits, juicy cherries and strawberry balanced by a hint of acidity for freshness and some subtle spice for added complexity. Perfect to drink by itself with an assortment of soft cheese and charcuterie.
There was a very small amount of red wine made here – some Pinot Noir for Bourgogne rouge, and some Gamay for a Mâcon-Bussières rouge. But really, it’s all about the Chardonnay in the Mâconnais. Things have been changing in this region: yes, it’s still one of the biggest producers of solid white wines, found in every brasserie and bistro; but growers are also realising that if they exploit their ‘terroirs’ carefully, keep yields low, and go easy on the oak-ageing, what emerges in the bottle can be seriously good. Marie-Pierre in a nutshell.
