2012, Vignes Du Maynes, Clos Des Vignes du Maynes, Macon Cruzille. One of my favorite winemakers but not a favorite wine of his. This seemed a little oxidized for a 2012. I know it is unfined and unfiltered. Something I actually enjoy in a wine. This did grow on me over 3 nights. Bruised apple, wet rock, acidity and a little almond. I would buy it again to compare. May have been a bad bottle but it still tasted pretty good on the third night.
