The 2022 Raphael Sallet Macon-Uchizy Les Maranches is a beautiful expression of Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes: This wine shows aromas and flavors of earthy notes, ripe apples, and hints of minerality. Enjoy this with a crab salad dressed with a lemon vinaigrette.

Winemaker Notes

Typical of the single-village Macon style, this wine is unoaked and emphasizes the fresh fruit and floral character of the Chardonnay grape. It is fresh and clean with notes of white flowers, Asian pear, lime, and elegant minerality. Full of energy but not sharp, this is a dry white wine for light meals or just sipping with friends.

Food Pairing : This wine is extremely food-friendly and also great as an aperitif. It will pair with a wide array of dishes including goat cheese, white fish, and shellfish, roasted chicken, and grilled vegetables.

About the Winery

Rafael Sallet is a maestro of fine white Burgundy winemaking. He is internationally regarded for crafting exceptional Chardonnay and for developing outstanding wines from lesser-known village appellations such as Mâcon-Uchizy, in southern Burgundy. The key to his success is his fanatical attention to detail. The vines are located within the commune of Uchizy, in Southern Burgundy in the North of the Mâconnais region at the average altitude of 850 feet above sea level. The soil here is primarily limestone and clay, on gentle slopes with East facing exposure. The 40 acre vineyard is sustainably farmed with a vine density of 3000 plants per acre and an average vine age of 30 years old. The vines are trained with classic Guyot trellising system. Grapes are gently and slowly pressed in pneumatic presses, then the juice is settled at low temperatures. Fermentations are done in temperature controlled stainless steel vats so as preserve the freshness and natural fruitiness in the grape. Alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation and maturation takes place on the fine lees to add texture and complexity. Racking and a light filtration are carried out prior to bottling in Spring, with no oak aging.
