White wine. Mâconnais, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Chardonnay. "The lieu à dit of Les Courtelongs lies on the eastern flank of the Roche de Solutré, with a very stony base of limestone topsoil. The family’s vines here are sixty years of age. Jacques Saumaize barrel-ferments this bottling and ages it in cask, with twenty percent new oak used each year. The 2018 Les Courtelongs offers up a beautiful bouquet of pear, delicious apple, almond, a lovely base of chalky minerality, white lilies and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, bright and full-bodied, with a beautiful vein of minerality running from start to finish, a lovely core of pure fruit, zesty acids and great length and grip on the poised and impeccably balanced finish. This is so precise and classic- especially for a 2018!" — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #88 (July/August 2020)
