A great value from the Mâconnais region. Subtle honey on the nose, with citrus, mineral notes and slight bitterness on the palate. While being quite powerful, it lacks a bit of elegance, although the latter may be the result of its relatively young age. Nice and balanced acidity on the finish. Recommended.
