This is a charming Chardonnay from a small grower in the Mâcon. Lionel Rhedon-Marin is a recent graduate of the College of Viticulture in the nearby village of Davaye, where Guffens trained. All of their young-vine fruit is sold in bulk to one of the better negociants, who is pleased to have it, since Lionel is such a careful grower. But their old-vine fruit, all over 45 years of age, is kept for the Domaine's wine, which is tantalizing and elegant. Our staff raves include: "This Domaine has always over-delivered." And: "Every vintage the Domaine des Niales wine is one of my favorites from the Maconnais." Because of our Direct Import pricing, this is a white Burgundy-level Chardonnay that you can enjoy any night of the week.

The bargain White Burgundies just keep on coming! Though this Macon reflects the richness of the 2015 vintage, it still retains the bright green apple and limestone indicative of this producer. The old vine fruit also adds some golden apple/caramel richness and depth. Generous minerality on the finish keeps things bright!

I liked these wines when I first tasted them a couple of vintages ago, but in the past two years Rhedon's Macon has absolutely astounded me. This wine is silly good for what the bottle costs. Beautiful notes of green and golden apple notes with plenty of acid and mineral drive. This showcases the beautiful richness of the 2015 vintage with fruit weight, but with such a long drive that the finish seems to go on and on. A perfect everyday Chardonnay from Burgundy.
