Excellent concentration. Lots to unravel but tons of Burgundy, full intense flavours. You can taste and feel the concentration from the low yields. As it opens it reveals lovely nutty, apple, and oak notes. An excellent expression of the Clos. This it what it's all about. A lot of wine in here. Tastes like something more serious. Drink 2023 to 2028.
Chateau de Messey is a new star from a special terroir in southern burgundy called 'Cruzille'. Boasting 1,000 years of history (they are mentioned in manuscripts dating back to the 9th century CE), Château de Messey is located just outside Tournus on a hilltop 300-400 metres above sea level and surrounded by woods. Owner Marc Dumont purchased the chateau complete with ancient vaulted cellars and 89ha of vines in the early '90s and the quality has sky-rocketed in the last few years. The estate is run by Fredereic Servais, named Winemaker of the Year in 2017 by Appelation Bourgogne for his work at Clos des Poncetys. The character is deeper and more complex than most Macon, and in fact, this is an hour to the North of Macon. This is from a delimitated part of a clos of 4 hectares and much higher than most vineyards in Burgundy.
FROM THE PRESS
“Fine aromas of white flowers, candied citrus fruits... The wine is rich, lemony, minty, long and pure. Great potential!”Bourgogne Audjourd'hui
