Domaine Fichet Macon-Ige Chateau London 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Olivier Fichet stands alone in the town of Ige. He is one of only three producers in the village, as the others include the town's cooperative and a single winemaker that simply bottles for local consumption. Established in 1976, Domaine Fichet started when Francis Fichet (Olivier's father) withdrew from the town co-op and began to make wines from his estate vineyards. In their youth, Oliver and his brother Pierre-Yves worked side-by-side with their father; tending to the vines and land that they own today. In 1990 the brothers took full control of the winery and began to broaden the Domaine's holdings: Oliver is in charge of all the wine making and vinification, while Pierre-Yves handles all the vineyard work. The lieu dit "Chateau London" is one of the oldest and most reputable terroirs in the Maconnais, due largely to its unique white limestone content, with chalk and clay; and to the microclimate that brings extra humidity and morning fog. Francis Fichet was one of the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Chardonnay dominant region. His original plantings are now over 30 years old and are blended with Pinot that Pierre-Yves planted in 1994.

I loved this wine, both 2004 and 2005. Bought every case available in my area when I realized how good it was for such a great price and how short lived that experience would be: have never seen it since. It was my house white b/c we entertain frequently and this wine tasted twice as much as it cost if not more. This wine was wonderful, even after trips to France and high brow bottles later this was still my default white. I love and appreciate good wine but very often price and quality have nothing to do with one another. I am a huge fan and on a constant search of great wines at reasonable prices. This was one of those and there was never a white wine drinker in my home who has not commented on how much they enjoyed it. I don't know why their new vintage was never imported (I searched all sites). My big wine depot placed orders multiple times (that was me requesting w/a guarantee to buy what was not sold) with no luck. So, still on the hunt for a great crispt French white under $10 despite reality...:(
