Optimal consumption: 2 to 4 years
Ageing potential: 5 years
Producing communes: Vinzelles and Loché.
Site: the production area stretches south of Burgundy in the Mâconnais region, within 10km south-west of Mâcon. Less famous than its neighbour « Fuissé », it has been known since the Roman times; « Vincella » is still tinged with its specificities. The vineyard, located at an altitude of 250m (820 feet), on the steep slope facing east, is dominated by its fortified castle.
Soil: clay and limestone rich in iron oxide.
by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
A wine for mere pleasure! Pale yellow colour with numerous bright green reflections. Intense persistant flavours of peach and white flowers harmoniously meshed together. On the palate, the wine is ample, fresh, intense, with reminiscent notes of ripe grapes, almond, fresh hazelnut and cinnamon. The mouth reveals an elegant wine endowered with a good structure.
The vagaries of the 2021 vintage have greatly affected yields, resulting in one of the smallest harvests Burgundy has ever seen. The whites are less opulent than previous vintages; they are well-balanced with lovely aromatics without excessive extravagance.Vintage review
Supply: this wine comes from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners according to rigorous specifications.
Harvest: grapes harvested by hands or with the grape harvester.
Vinification: the grapes are pressed with a pneumatic press. After settling the juices ferments for 2/3 in stainless steel vats and for 1/3 in 500 litre oak barrels.
Ageing: it remains mixed during 6 to 10 months.
Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
