Guy Amiot, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Les Macherelles’, France, 2018
A fine plot bordering the northern residential area of the village, adjacent to the “Chenevottes” and the “Vergers”. There are at least two explanations for the name “Macherelles”: it could be either an edible plant that grew there in ancient times, or the feminine form of “Machuré”, as inhabitants of the village are called. The first layer of soil is composed of clay drained by rain from the top of the hill. Digging down, there are limestone elements into which the roots of the vines have burrowed in search of water and nutrients from the soil.
Aromas of lemon curd and white flowers are followed by freshly cut pear and orange peel with a hint of almond on the finish.
