Mâcon La Roche Vineuse, Mâconnais

Roux Père & Fils

Macon La Roche-Vineuse Chardonnay 2020

Brilliant yellow-gold color. Aromas of pineapple, mango, apple and vanilla. Bright yellow delicious apple leads the palate along with hints of honey and savory spices. Nice mouthfeel and some noticeable vanilla on the medium-long finish. Texture is slightly creamy/syrupy and there is some noticeable RS. — 2 months ago

Mâcon La Roche-Vineuse Bourgogne Chardonnay 2021


Drank more like a Riesling than a Chardonnay. Enjoyable but no real oak and was brighter. Unexpected but good. Kurt club wine — 4 months ago

Les Cras Macon La Roche-Vineuse Chardonnay 2015

2022/5/28 with tai sashimi 2 ways, tomato in dashi, chicken and new onion in pea and white miso soup, etc. There may be some bias since I’ve been looking for bottles like this since being reminded of how good classicist white Burgundy is with Kyoto food, but this really did it, and even more so considering the price. Savory, salty minerals, butter and citrus, the requisite oak, some honey from maturity - it all just works. — 2 years ago

Vieilles Vignes Mâcon La Roche-Vineuse Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Mâcon La Roche Vineuse Vieilles Vignes is completely barrel fermented; however, since ‘03 Merlin has utilised less new oak, currently using around 10-15%. The 2019 is well-defined on the nose with hints of white flowers and orange blossom. The palate is quite spicy and peppery, a powerful Mâcon with just a light touch of honey towards the finish. Very fine. (Neal Martin, Vinous, November 2021)
