White wine. Mâconnais, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Chardonnay. "The 2018 Mâcon-Bussières “Montbrison” from Domaine Jacques Saumaize is a gorgeous bottle of Mâconnais chardonnay. The bouquet wafts from the glass in an utterly refined and complex blend of pear, almond, apple blossoms, bee pollen, a dollop of buttery oak and a beautiful base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, ripe and zesty, with outstanding mid-palate depth, fine focus and grip, a lovely vein of minerality and a long, bouncy and complex finish. This is a fairly ripe example, but the Mâcon-Bussières is in the southern end of the region, tucked up against the smaller Roche de Bussière and has a fine base of limestone soils, which clearly were an advantage in keeping lift and bounce in the hot summer of 2018." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #88 (July/August 2020)
