Allen Meadows – Outstanding. Top Value. Here the wood treatment is more subtle on the cool, pure and layered combination of floral, pear and apple aromas. There is most evident minerality in the detailed and vibrant flavors that possess a refined mouth feel, all wrapped in a mildly austere, racy and citrus zest-inflected finish.
About This Wine
The Mâcon-Bussières vineyard is located to the north of the Roche (rock) de Vergisson. Rooted on the rocky, south-facing slope, Le Clos is a small lieu-dit of Mâcon-Bussières and in top years Guffen's vinifies the oldest vines from this parcel as a separate cuvée. With more complexity and flesh than the wine above, 20% of the wine is naturally fermented and raised in Guffen's bespoke wooden barrels. It shows the generosity of the vintage with layers of pulpy fruit yet it remains archetypal Verget; seamlessly poised, perfumed and with great finesse from a year that favoured the Mâcon's cooler, mineral terroirs. There's aromas of flint, acacia, apricot blossom and ripe peach leading to a layered, textured palate threaded with mineral freshness and an earthy, savoury complexity that is pure heaven is such a generous wine. Another cracking, white Burgundy bargain.
