Tasting Notes

Founded by the Dutron family in 1835, Château Vitallis is run today by winemaker Dennis Dutron. It is an estate of about 40 acres, including 5 acres in Macon-Fuissé. From the importer: "The estate is known for its old vines, some of which are over 65 years old. The average age is 35 years. The vineyards are situated on Southeast facing slopes at an altitude of 750 to 900 feet in the villages of Fuissé and Solutre … They use traditional methods in the vineyards and and temperature-controlled cellar. The use of stainless steel vats assures a long cool fermentation and preservation of the fruit and aromas. Aging continues in new and old oak barrels but always with a light touch."

    It's back! The new vintage of the Dutron family's top value in the Macon suits enthusiasts of unoaked and oaked Chardonnay. All of the elements of a well-made wine are gathered together in this bottle: beautiful lemon, apple and white flower aromatics, zesty acidity and a discreet lick of oak. Pour this in your glass and it will instantly becomes a favorite.

    The aromatics here are bright, fresh and lead to a warm, juicy middle of ripe citrus and crushed stone fruits. This is a generous, refreshing bargain with a delicious long, pebbly finish that will have you reaching for another sip.

    At first glance, I was shocked by the depth, purity and aromatics of this Macon. The palate follows up with beautiful concentration, bright acidity and a medium-full body. The slightest hint of oak gives it a classy flare. Everything is properly in its place here. This is a fantastic weeknight Chardonnay, another reason why you should be looking into Macon for the incredible values to be found there. This is definitely one of them.
