The Masse family has lived in Burgundy since 1595, but developed a wine estate only after the Second World War. The winery, cellars and the estate have all been modernized over the past 30 years. Select plots have recently been purchased to extend the estate’s vineyard holdings in key appellations in the Cote Challonaise and Maconnais.
The average age of this vineyard is over 40 years. it enjoys a warm Southern exposure, which gives excellent ripeness, but it is still fresh and lively, even in a warm vintage like 2018. This wine ages 11 months in oak barriques. The nose is fine and delicate, while the palate is pure, fresh and elegant. A fabulous value in Bourgogne blanc.
Pair with charcuterie platters (ham or pâtés) or sea food (scallop-shells, salmon). It can also be drunk with hot first courses, such as quiches and pies, or with dry cheeses (goat’s cheese for instance).
