Domaine Chene – Macon La Roche Vineuse


Another attractive looking bottle… The same wine is sold in the UK by M&S at £12, with a slightly different label. Better than their £10 Macon Villages which I find slightly over-priced.

Tasting notes: A full-flavoured Mâcon from a 30 hectare family estate. It displays pineapple (and apparently ‘acacia’ flavours – however having never tasted that tree, I cannot confirm this). Good white burgundy at an inviting price. Hints of tropical fruits. Some creaminess on the palate. Good texture.

Food Pairing: This would go well with the usual poultry and fish dishes – and was a good aperitif.
