An expert's opinion

We had to visit a truly historical place to find this wine; the Abbey of Cluny in the middle of the Mâconnais, no less. Here, Chardonnay is king and particularly so in the high quality appellations of the Macon, where certain villages, this one included, has earnt the right to display its village name on the label. Milly-Lamartine is one of the most highly regarded wine-making villages in the area, and you'll soon see why, with wines that are fresh, elegant and yet still maintain depth and power.

The estate

Château des Bois

Xavier Greuzard has been running the operation here for 5 years, located on top of a wind-swept hill with views to the surrounding area. He was born and bred here, so it comes as no surprise to see him fitting in so well, having taken over this estate from the previous owner to fulfil his childhood dream of making top quality wine, just like his parents!
