Domaine Du Mont Epin Macon-Peronne 2016

Origin: France
Retail: $21.95 | Sale $19.75

Richard and Stephanie Martin, owners of St. Veran’s renowned Croix Sennaillet estate, purchased the historic Mont Epin domaine in 2015. Situated in the commune of Clesse in the Maconnais region of southern Burgundy, Domaine du Mont-Epin specializes in chardonnay, the grape of Macon. The clay and limestone soils of the estate feature a steady slope which allows contstant and consistent drainage. The vineyard is also sheltered by the forested summit of Mont Epin, which combined with a weastern exposure allows for a late ripening of the grapes. All of this results in a wine that is crisp with underlying richness and a distinct thread of minerality.
