Medium yellow; looks thicker than the Mâcon-Villages. Pure scents of apple, white peach and acacia flower. Juicier and firmer than the Mâcon-Villages, with a sound spine of lemony acidity keeping the fairly intense orchard fruit flavors under wraps today. This racy wine displays a slightly tart aspect but also a lovely touch of sweetness. I'd give it until next summer to knit. Drink: 2017-2022 (Nov17)

Great value can still be found in Burgundy! Saumaize-Michelin is a 9.5 ha estate located in Vergisson. They switched to Biodynamics back in 2005 and place great importance in the maintenance of the vineyards bacterial life and the management of flora and micro flora diversity. The estate sits upon a diverse mosaic soil and rocks which winemaker Roger Saumaize expresses through the different bottlings.
