2020 Rouve Macon-Villages Blanc
2020 Rouve Macon-Villages Blanc – Harmonious to the palate distinguished by an exotic weave, compact with an elegant finish. Marriages fruit and oak superbly, loved the intensity and the length.
Rouve is nestled in the hills of Verze, a small historic village of Maconnais dating back to the 10th century, offering an exceptional terroir. Our estate is located in the heart of Burgundy amongst a typical vineyard landscape of the region and benefits from a cool temperate climate.
We tasted this wine Thursday and one of our Senior Wine Advisors turned round and said ‘Oh yes this is Meursault, how much $70, $80 a bottle. When he heard what we could sell this wine for, he could not believe it. The wine hails from the Southern part of Burgundy, Macon, from the appellation of Verze. This is the land of Pouilly Fuisse and Verze has proven their wines superior and getting their own recognition. The wine is marvelously rich, very pronounced, citrus aromas, marshmallow, and exotic fruits (mango, pineapple, lychee). The great white Burgundy producer Domaine Leflaive makes a Macon Verze that sells for $70 a bottle. This is great terroir for white Burgundy!
