Domaine Olivier Merlin Mâcon La Roche-Vineuse Vieilles Vignes 2015
The details on the label of a Bourgogne wine are true indicators of the bottle’s quality contents. That's why it's important for some prodicers to include commune names on the label. Olivier Merlin's Mâcon land is on the west-facing slopes of La Roche Vineuse, a commune in Bourgogne associated with high quality. The Chardonnay vines used to make this wine are on the older side, which is why the term “Vielles Vignes” appears on the label. On the nose, tart and focussed with precise acidity, notes of melon, lemon and a hint of pineapple as well, some white blossom notes. Puckering acidity and tart notes of lemon and grapefruit explode on the palate and are quickly tempered by creamy toast notes and a finish of mouth enveloping oak and earth with more notes of golden berries and a short finish. SRP: $24.

    I had the Cremant di Bourgogne many years ago and truly enjoyed it.
    It is impossible to find in the Rhode Island and ct. area. Even though these are not expensive, the distribution in this area is terrible.
