Domaine Manciat-Poncet is a result of the merger of two family-owned estates: the Manciats in Charnay-lès-Mâcon and the Poncet family in Vergisson, in the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. The vines are all aged between 40 and 60 years and the wines display lovely floral notes.
A perenial favorite from this fine producer, this wine is fermented and aged 100% in stainless steel tanks to preserve all of the zesty fruit and mineral qualities that fine Mâcon should exhibit. The chardonnay fruit for this wine comes from the Manciats' middle-aged vineyards in and around the village of Charnay. 100% hand-harvested grapes (a rarity in the region) and attention to detail at every level make this one of the purist, most satisfying white burgundies in its class.
The nose is of ripe green apples with just a hint of citrus. Not muddled by oak that would overpower the delicate fruit, it shows crisp acidity and good mineral punch in the middle while finishing plump and long. A great value in chardonnay!
