Domaine du Bicheron Mâcon-Péronne, Burgundy 2018
Drinking the 2018 vintage last night with oysters reminded me just how very good this wine really is and not surprisingly our top-selling white wine. It is made by the Rousset family, who have been making wine in Péronne, just to the north of Pouilly-Fuissé, since 1889. Their latest vintage is a delightfully fresh, well-balanced and complex white burgundy at a very good price indeed, rare considering the tiny harvests in recent years.
The previous vintage won a gold medal at the 'Chardonnay du Monde' competition held last year, the annual tasting of nearly 700 wines from 37 countries to select the best Chardonnays in the world. This wine is also part of our mixed case, perfect to taste three different white burgundies from super producers.

How does the wine taste?
A fresh, nectarine scented nose; richly textured palate with clean acidity, juicy, stone fruit character, mineral streak and a long finish. Very well put together, complex and full white burgundy.
What do the critics say?
"The 2018 Domaine du Bicheron, MâconPéronne, FromVineyardsDirects bestselling white, is corking value old vine white burgundy brimming with fresh apple and quince notes and just a tease of citrus and honey."
