Tasting Notes

Domaine Renaud is a small operation, making Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé and St. Veran from 12 hectares of estate vineyards. Their cellar is modern, and they use upright ovals for many of the wines, and stainless steel for others. This value is a great alternative to California Chardonnay and an entry into white Burgundy.

    We have directly imported this lovely single vineyard production from the Reanuds for over five years, and this effort is, without a doubt, their best Chardonnay production to date. A superb nose of tropical fruit, white peach, and jasmine-like fruit is enhanced by undertones of wet-river stone to slate-like minerality, all of which carries over to a rich, lush, elegant palate impression that shows excellent structure and broadness of flavor on through its mouthwatering finish. This Gem is a fabulous representation of what wonderful wines can come from this area. Many of my colleagues have called this an excellent "crossover wine for our customers," and I just maintained that it doesn’t matter; it is just a brilliant production of Chardonnay. The Bean has demanded that I bring home several cases of this Gem for our consumption over the next three to five years. A SUPER VALUE” >>>A K&L WINE MERCHANTS’ DIRECT IMPORT<<< ***** 13.0% ABV *****

    2015 marks our tenth vintage of the Domaine Renaud Macon-Charnay, and it remains one of our best values in a white Burgundy. 100% Chardonnay aged in stainless steel in a crisp, clean, mineral driven style, this is classic Mâconnais. 2015 was very warm and dry, adding an extra layer of ripeness. Classic stone fruit notes of peach and nectarine give way to more exotic notes of mango and papaya. Lovely weight here, this wine should have broad appeal.

    The Domaine Renaud Macon Charnay is a fantastic value for those who love richer white Burgundies. Beautiful aromatics of spiced carmelized pear, clove and brown sugar give way to a dry yet full palate. Playful hints of fresh apricot are followed by a rush of serious minerality.

    This is consistently one of our best selling Macon's. The Charnay from Renaud has golden apple and white stone fruit scents. On the palate, apple and pear flavors are compensated amply by the citrus and minerality that takes you by surprise. A very nice, lingering finish. This latest effort from Domaine Renaud is a definite winner!

    Very gracious wine, with the bright and delicate tropical fruit notes framed by the intense minerality. Complex and yet quite easy to drink.

    This is by far the best vintage of Domaine Renaud I've yet tasted! The Macon Charnay is always a favorite bottling for me, with its subtle floral aromas, and elegant, lighter body. This year, the Charnay is bolder than usual, displaying a whole array of aromas both floral and fruit driven. On the palate, the wine retains the characteristic linear mineral element, but complemented by soft orchard fruit notes,
