White wine. Mâconnais, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Chardonnay. "The vineyard of La Maréchaude is located on the southern flank of the Roche de Vergisson, about mid-slope, with deep clay soils pockmarked with white stones. The Saumaize family has three distinct parcels of vines in this lieu à dit, with the oldest plot being eighty years of age. Like all of the family’s Pouilly-Fuissé bottlings, it is barrel-fermented and raised in twenty percent new oak. The 2018 La Maréchaude delivers fine aromatic complexity in its mix of pear, apple, hazelnut, a lovely base of soil (albeit, not particularly chalky in character) and buttery oak. On the palate the wine is deep, ripe and pure, with a full-bodied format, a rock solid core of fruit, bright, snappy acids and excellent focus and grip on the long and complex finish. Not surprisingly, this is more fruit-driven in personality than the Les Courtelongs bottling, but every bit as high quality." — 92+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #88 (July/August 2020)
