Maconnais, Burgundy, France
A seductive wine and a really nice expression of the Chardonnay grape!
The color is golden, with some green reflections. Among the floral and fruity aromas, almond and ripe grapes dominate. On the palate, the wine is refreshingly pleasant, ethereal in its lightness. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Pair with hors d'oeuvres, delicately flavored charcuterie, oysters, mussels and any other shellfish.
Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Seguin-Manuel has undergone a major rejuvenation since its acquisition by Thibaut Marion in 2004, 180 years after its foundation in 1824. Coming from a ten-generation family of winegrowers, Chanson Père & Fils, Thibaut started his career -- and honed his skills for seven years -- at the family winery in Beaune. Today, he puts his experience, passion and energy at the service of the great wines of Burgundy. The range has thus been considerably extended through the acquisition of new vineyards et new grape suppliers. Every effort has been made at Seguin-Manuel to let the wines express their natural balance and each cuvée is crafted with the intention of reflecting its terroir with panache. Seguin-Manuel's vineyards are grown organically with no use of chemicals, certified since 2015. "Les Cazetiers" typically shows a dark purple colour. The bouquet is precise, stylish and intense. Black fruit aromas are mingled with a hint of toasted and spicy notes. It is both powerful and precise with fine and elegant tannins. Very long aftertaste. To be paired with a leg of lamb, braised ham or a matured cheese. The aging potential of this wine indicates its best after 7 to 10 years, and more than 15 years for the great vintages.
