Albert Bichot Macon-Pierreclos 2016
Macon-Pierreclos is a Villages site in the far south of the Maconnais region of Burgundy. It borders Beaujolais and, as such, the grape found here is Gamay.
The Gamay grape thrives on granitic based soils and therefore produces wines that are different, but by no means far removed, from its great relation Pinot Noir.
The Macon-Pierreclos is a beautifully light and easy drinking red with notes of cherry, plum and mild spices on the nose. Soft and straightforward on the palate with intensely fruity flavours against a tangy background. The finish is refreshing with notes of ripe red fruit.
