An expert's opinion

A lovely, pretty village wine. This charming Chardonnay hails from the Macon, an area known for good value wines within Burgundy and manages to balance the minerality, fruit and softness of its style. This is Paul Benoît's wine and as we've come to expect, it's a fruity, buttery Chardonnay with some lovely floral notes as well. It's a style of wine to be enjoyed in youth; flattering, fresh and absolutely thirst quenching. It may seem light in appearance but there's enough weight to accompany fish, seafood and even light meats. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

The estate

Maison Paul Benoit

The estate is run by three brothers and their father, who take great care to preserve the legacy of the first generation of their family who first grew vines here in 1947, near Meursault. A family business, from the soil of the vineyards to the labels on the bottles, and all the better for it! The construction of a new winery in Beaune has allowed them to take control of the entire process, making this a truly home-grown domaine!
