Tasting Notes

From a 1.5ha parcel, this is the fullest expression of the clos, more like Montrachet than Macon really. Fairly full and rich, but not overly so, with fabulous peach notes on the palate and fine limestone seam that lingers long after the last sip. Being that little bit weightier and richer, it pairs very well with langoustines, scallops, crab on toast or any good white fish like hake or halibut. 

More Info

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.
